    Hi guys,
    I am in my early stages of studying veterinary at an AVMA accredited school,outside the US.
    Could u guys tell me if u know any foreign graduates who got onto specialty training in the US?
    Also,whats the visa situation like?I dont have a green card.
    They say australia is quite a bit easier for the latter,and i wouldnt have to sit any exams but the US is my dream.
    Thanks a lot
    Good luck to you all

    Anyone who just took their CPE who's kind enough to share their experience? Nothing pertaining to the test itself but important pointers and the big NO's and positive things you can share. :love:

    For those who want to know...I think the surgery section of the CPE is the most difficult to prepare for because many foreign schools don't necessarily teach the "correct" way of prepping for surgery, such as scrubbing, gowning, draping, etc... Not to mention it is hard to get experience doing surgery if you are not licenced in the US. If anyone has good tips on how to prep for this section of the CPE, we would greatly appreciate it!

    Hi, VetYoKo,

    Thank you for sharing. You are so great. Nice to meet you here. I visited your website and got to know you. Actually I have the same career goal as yours. I am Chinese and doing postdoc in US. I hope someday I will become a vet in US, have my own clinic and also do some research in university.
    I am doing research on gene regulation of motabolic disease in a medical school in US. Maybe someday we can meet in a conference, since you are alos doing research.
    best wishes

    Hey Guys
    Finally I got scheduled my Anesthesia retake. I am doing it in Vegas this January 2012! Good luck to everyone. If anyone is taking the CPE (full or part) in Vegas this Jan. drop me a line.

    To all of you that are taking CPE soon. At this point you guys have the knowledge that takes for the test. CPE is gonna be the most stressful time of your student-life. So remaining calm and focus will be your keys to success.

    Good Luck

    Hi I am new to this forum, I just took the BCSE in November and I got my results yesterday, I passed on BCSE and I am taking NAVLE in April, also I want to register for the CPE, I have heard that takes quite a bit of time even a year to get a spot, however My step 1 is still incomplete and I sent the transcripts and diploma notarized copies, but I think the ECFVG also sends a form with my picture that has to signed by the Dean of my school and then returned to the ECFVG, my school in Brazil is not the best when come to paperwork, not even mention that I dought that any secretary that could possibly have gotten that actually Knows English, therefore not having a clue what is about, maybe even got ready of it, anyway, I tried to call and mail ECFVG coordinator to ask what is still missing so I can take care of it, but no luck so far...no response, so I would like to ask you guys what were the documents you guys had to send and your school to complete step 1...OHHH YEahh I forgot to mention why I am asking, is because I got a memorandum with my scores saying that now We cannot register for the CPE before steps 1, 2, and 3 are completed, before I know you could , except you wouldn't get your certificate of completion, but you could register for the test, anyway they change the rules for that just now in DEcember...my luck...

    thanks for any info

    yes you can take both NAVLE and BCSE in your Country, just go in the AVMA-ECFVG page and read the candidate bulletin and in the NBVME web page for the NAVLE bulletin, pretty much every single question you can possibly have about how to enroll, pay, register, change dates, location...etc will be in the bulletin, I mean everything, its all matter of going in the web site and cautiously read it, the only thing that you won't find in there is specific info about the actual exam, such as questions obviously, but all the proceedings are very well explained

    Hi Usermyca,
    my confirmation with the school is not completed yet neither, but you can stil take the NAVLE right away, which is what the most of people do because they have a fresh memory of everything from the BCSE.
    It doesn't take a year to get a spot for the CPE .
    Sent me a email and i'll send you my phone number, maybe we can chat a little about it. :)

    Hi there
    I had to do the same thing. I took the form and literally waited for the Dean of my school. Explained him the situation. And he gladly signed the form and gave it back to me in a school envelop.
    Good luck

    Hello,
    I know this post is from years ago but I was trying to find some info about H1b visa and when I saw this I decided to reply with a question.
    I'm veterinarian from Croatia without NAVLE, I'm also a vet tech and I'm planing to apply for H1b this April. I have a veterinarian who is willing to apply for me as a veterinary technologist because I don't have a license to work as a vet. Does anyone has any experience with same thing? Does anyone know can I get H1b visa as a vet tech or technologist or maybe assistant? Please help.
    Thank you all.

    I think there are no problem to get a H1 visa as long as there is someone would like to hire you. I know in some states it is not necessary to have license of vet assistant as long as you have vet degree. good luck

Do you think vetprep or zuku is useful? which one is better?zuku sales tests for BCSE specifically. Are they just pull out some questions from the NAVLE pool? Anyone has an answer? really appreciated!:)

    Hi all,
    just wanted to let you know I finally got my ECFVG certificate!
    I started thus journey in September 2009. I choose ECFVG cause is accepted in all US.
    to complete step 1 I got all my records and scores from Vet School. Got them stamped by Education and Exterior Relationship Ministers in Peru. Then got them officially translated to english ( it was way cheaper to do it in Peru) and sent all that to AVMA / ECFVG.
    To complete step 2. I took TOEFL. I had to take it twice to get the score required.
    For step 3. I used zukureview for 5 months. 100 questions/day for 4-5 days a week.
    for NAVLE I studied Zuku again. Did not pass. The second time I used Vetprep for 4 months.
    For step 4 I took it very close to second NAVLE. I practiced sx in Peru. And watched a lot of videos from Youtube about large animals and horses. I failed anesthesia.
    I retook anesthesia in jan 17-18in Vegas. And passed!

    So there you have it that is my formula. I was working as Vet Tech the whole time. The Drs. helped me a lot with questions and explanations.

    This is the end of this journey, I hope you don't give up and persevere.
    I made some good friends here and during tests. I wish you the best to you all.

    If anyone visits Salt Lake City or wants to chat, here is my info

    Hello all:)
    I'm Japanese veterinarian graduated from vet university in Japan 2011.
    Now I am working at livestock hygiene center as a public vet in Japan.
    Although I don't have clinical experience except practices in university, I'm interested in having veterinary internship especially equine field in USA, Canada or UK.
    So is it possible for me without clinical experience to pass the residency matching program by AAVC? Or I should apply after working in equine vet clinic in Japan for years?

    I'm new here and am so happy to find such a wonderful forum to talk about our veterinary career with vets from all over the world!
    In Japan it's hard to get useful information, so please give me advice.

    Thank you for reading

    Hello all,

    I just wanted to let you know that I've passed QE this Jan 2012. Getting into a clinical year probably this Sep. I posted the study materials that I used on my website yoko.ambrosini.us. (it's under "share your experience"). My friend who just passed BCSE also agreed to put her study materials on the website, so those of you who're doing ECFVG should check out my website too.

    I will try my best to share my experience with new people so please don't hesitate to email me (vetyoko223@yahoo.com) when you have questions. For example, I didn't know that people were having hard time finding study materials for QE or BCSE. I thought this forum would be enough! But now I'm getting a lot of emails regarding the study materials (and apparently some people don't want to share...), so now I know that I should post that on my website. So please please ask questions so I know what is needed for new foreign vets to get US licensure.

    Also, if you already passed exams or CPE, it would be great if you can share your experience, study materials for new foreign vets. Shoot me an email with your experience!

    Good luck to everybody and wish me luck on finishing this process soon!
    Yoko
