North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) Study Resources

Resources for studying for the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE). Last updated: 4/2/20.

Basic and Clinical Sciences Examination

The Basic and Clinical Sciences Examination (BCSE) has been developed by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Educational Commission for Foreign Veterinary Graduates (ECFVG) as the third of four steps in assessing educational equivalency for purposes of ECFVG certification. It is designed to assess basic and clinical veterinary sciences knowledge. The knowledge level expected to receive a passing score on the BCSE is that of an entry-level US veterinarian (i.e., new graduate of an AVMA-accredited veterinary school). More information is available from the AVMA's Basic and Clinical Sciences Examination Candidate Bulletin.

The resources listed below are those referenced in the BCSE Candidate Bulletin that are available from the MSU Libraries.

Use of materials from the MSU Libraries is generally limited to MSU affiliates. See our Lending Policies & Borrower Responsibilities page for more information.
