WVA Position on Global Veterinary Day-One Competencies

Author: WVA

The Day-One Competences are the combination of knowledge, skills and
experience that new veterinary graduates need to possess for a safe start
entering the veterinary profession and to enable them to perform most of the duties that they will encounter. World-wide, the profession as a whole has to define realistically which Day- One Competencies they expect new graduates to have. The World Veterinary Association [WVA] is best placed to take the lead in guiding this process.
The level of the global veterinary Day-One Competences will depend on the quality of the veterinary Education and Training offered by the veterinary Faculties or Schools. Currently many schools do not meet the requirements of adequate veterinary training.
