EVDC Residency Covid-19 Contingency Planning

COVID-19 has had a huge impact on our lives including the residency programmes that are currently running. This is clearly illustrated by the results of a questionnaire distributed amongst residents.

The EVDC board has created a Resident Support Group (RSG) which both residents and supervisors can contact regarding any issue that arises due to Covid restrictions. The RSG consists of the chairs of the Education Committees (EVDC – Nicolas Girard and EVDC-Equine subspecialty – Henry Tremaine), plus Lieven Vlaminck, EVDC Board Member-at-Large, to co-ordinate the response and to act as liaison between the Board and the EdC chairs.

Contingency measures were discussed and approved by the Board to assist residents-in-training in 2020 and 2021, who may (have) experienced difficulties with acquiring material for their case logs. They will be in effect for residents enrolled in programmes during 2020 and 2021 as described in the Residency Covid-19 Contingency planning 2021. At EVDC board in Feb 2022 it was decided that as clinical work and training is resuming some COVID contingencies can be phased out.
