Exam Dates and Deadlines

ECVO information - updated September 2021

2022

The ECVO theoretical exam will be held online from April 4-8, 2022.  

The ECVO practical exam will be held from June 16-17, 2022 in Zurich. 

General

The Examination and Executive Committees understand that exam candidates and colleagues need as much notice as possible to facilitate planning. A procedural change will occur. The theoretical exam will be held annually during the month of April, and the exact dates will be announced one year before. 

Future theory exams will be held online. Candidates can sit the exam in their home countries if certain requirements are fulfilled, including the direct invigilation by a European or American Diplomate (of any college). 

The practical exam will be held in the same year. We will try to give the dates and location one year in advance but this may not always be possible. 

Please read the updated Reading List (which has been reduced) and the updated Exam Instructions for Candidates (changes highlighted in yellow).
