The World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, founded as OIE) developed the following documents to support its Members with the provision of high-quality veterinary and veterinary paraprofessional education:
WOAH Recommendations on the competencies of graduating veterinarians (‘Day 1 graduates’)
WOAH Guidelines on Veterinary Education core curriculum
This set of Recommendations provides an overview of the competencies necessary for the Day-1 veterinary graduate to be adequately prepared to participate in national Veterinary Services at the entry-level.
These Guidelines are meant to serve as a tool for Veterinary Education institutions in WOAH Members to use when developing curricula to educate veterinary students to the expected level of competency.

WOAH Competency Guidelines for Veterinary Paraprofessionals
WOAH Curricula Guidelines for Veterinary Paraprofessionals
WOAH Guide to Veterinary Statutory Body Twinning Projects
