The European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education was founded in 1988 at the Ecole Nationale Vétérinaire d'Alfort. It is the accreditation authority for veterinary education establishments within Europe; It supervises about 110 establishments, many of which are outside the European Community (Turkey, Israel etc.). Its missions are to evaluate, promote and develop the quality approach and standards in veterinary education.
The school of Alfort, together with the Sher-e-Bangla University, Bangladesh, the Ceva animal health laboratories, and their partner in Bangladesh, ACI, are training in avian pathology.
The graduation ceremony of the 2016-2017 session took place on January 19, 2017 in the presence of the Ambassador of France, Her Excellency Mrs. Sophie Hubert.
Professor Marc Gogny, director of the EnvA since September 2012, has returned to his original establishment ONIRIS, in Nantes. Professor Christophe Degueurce will act until the appointment of a new director. Applications will be closed on 16 February.
Located near Paris, in a highly populated area, with about 6 millions dogs and cats (30% of the total population in France) Alfort Veterinary School has always been the largest European training centre for pet’s medicine and surgery.
This explains why Alfort is considered as the French reference and one of the world’s best centre of expertise in pet’s breeding and medicine.
Since October 2009, the pet clinics have been regrouped in a modern high-tech dedicated building, named “Small Animals Veterinary Hospital” (Centre Hospitalier Universitaire d’Alfort).
