International Pathway

The Program for the Assessment of Veterinary Education Equivalence (PAVE®) is the pathway for veterinarians who are graduates of international, non-accredited veterinary programs, to practice in the United States and Canada.

PAVE evaluates the education equivalence of these graduates on behalf of participating AAVSB Member Boards.

Due to a high volume of applicants, please expect a waiting period for acceptance into an Evaluated Clinical Experience (ECE). Please understand paying associated fees and passing the Qualifying Science Exam (QSE) does not guarantee placement in an ECE.
