The ECZM, evolved from the European College of Avian Medicine and Surgery (ECAMS), founded in 1993. In 2009 following new Specialist areas were provisionally recognised by the EBVS: Herpetological Medicine, Small Mammal Medicine and Wildlife Population Health, and in 2012 Zoo Health Management. The Specialist areas run parallel and separate to each other.
