Five CVS Referral clinicians become European Specialists

This month we celebrate the fantastic achievement of five of our referral clinicians who have passed their Diploma exams to become Board-certified Specialists.

Anna Tauro and Emili Alcoverro from ChesterGates Veterinary Specialists both become ECVN European Specialists in Veterinary Neurology. Darren Carwardine from Highcroft Veterinary Referrals in Bristol becomes an ECVS European Specialist in Small Animal Surgery and George Nye, also from Highcroft Veterinary Referrals, becomes an ECVN Specialist in Veterinary Neurology. Sergio Gomes of Dovecote Veterinary Hospital in Castle Donington becomes an ECVN Specialist in Veterinary Neurology, and the first CVS trained resident to complete their residency and become a Specialist.

Chris Tems, Director of Operations for CVS Referrals, says “Becoming a Specialist requires enormous commitment, patience and hard work. We could not be more proud of the achievements of all of our clinicians and residents who have passed their exams this year, especially as all of them have been studying during some of the most challenging pressures in practice due to Covid this year.

“We also thank the individuals and teams who have supported our new Specialists along their journeys, for without this passing the diploma exams would not have been possible. We have some amazing clinical teams in our referral hospitals who look to support each other to ensure each individual clinician can reach their full potential. Thank you all.”
