NAVLE Self-Assessments

NAVLE self-assessments (Practice NAVLE) are web-based practice examinations designed to help NAVLE candidates identify their strengths and weaknesses as they prepare for the NAVLE, and to help them learn about the content and format of the NAVLE.  Multiple English and French versions are offered, and a score report is immediately available after completion of an assessment.


NAVLE Competencies and Diagnoses

This section covers the clinical and professional competencies required of veterinarians as they perform their daily responsibilities, such as Communication, Leadership, Lifelong Learning, Practice Management, Professionalism, Health Management, One Health Concepts, and Epidemiology.

Clinical diagnoses were grouped by species and organ system within species, for most species. Similar species were grouped together for the purpose of analyses.
