    Hi @Dr. H-A-H,

    I did pass the CPE. I actually wrote about my experience and preparation in a separate thread. Here is a LINK TO MY POST.

    Hi! I hope this is the right thread to ask this. I was wondering what process someone would have to go through to practice in another country? Specifically, if someone graduates from a US AVMA accredited school, can they practice in the UK, which also has AVMA accredited schools? Or do they need to sit additional exams?

    After taking the CPE and NAVLE, can you proceed on taking the board exam in any state in US?

    Hi, If your foreign certificate is evaluated by Foreign Credential Service of America (FCSA) and you DVM degree is equivalent to a DVM degree in US, can you proceed straight to taking the board exams in any State in US?

    That's a good question. The short answer is YES; after completing the ECFVG and NAVLE you are eligible to be licensed in all 50 states. However, I registered for the California state boards in August, and did the CPE later in October!

    The CA state boards consists of 2 parts: the legal exam (it's take-home, they send it by mail), and the actual sit-down medical board exam.

    I took the law exam when it arrived in September, then I took the CPE in October (passed), and then I took the medical portion of the CA boards in December. So, call your state board and find out if you can speed up the process! (By the way, if I had NOT passed the CPE on that first try, I'm pretty sure I would not have been able to take the CA board exam afterwards)
