Examination of applicants
(1)All applicants for a license shall be given a written examination which may, in the Oregon State Veterinary Medical Examining Board’s discretion, be supplemented by an oral examination to determine their knowledge of veterinary and comparative anatomy, physiology, histology, pathology, materia medica, therapeutics, sanitary and preventive medicine, surgery, bacteriology, milk and meat inspection, practice of veterinary medicine, physical diagnosis, poisonous plants and toxicology and such other subjects as the board deems advisable.
(2)In addition to preparing its own examination, the board may adopt by rule and use a written or oral examination or any part thereof prescribed by a nationally recognized professional veterinary organization.
(3)The examination shall be designed to test both the scientific and practical knowledge of applicants and sufficiently exacting to test the applicant’s fitness to practice veterinary medicine, surgery and dentistry. The written examination shall be so conducted that the members of the board do not know the name of the applicant whose answers are being graded or judged until after the judging or grading is completed.
