Abstract

VETERINARY graduates from overseas who wish to practise in the UK, and who are not eligible for registration by the RCVS by virtue of a recognised EU or 'Commonwealth and foreign' qualification, or a qualification from an accredited college in the USA or Canada, are normally required to sit and pass the RCVS 'statutory membership examination'. Recent years have seen a steady increase in the number of overseas vets who hope to demonstrate that, by passing the exam, they have the 'requisite knowledge and skill to be fit to practise veterinary surgery' in the UK. Denis and Nikoleta Novak, from Serbia, had a different motive. Here they tell their story.
