The annual symposium, co-hosted by the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine and the Mississippi State College of Veterinary Medicine offers presentations and networking opportunities designed to help primary care educators generate new ideas and develop more effective educational strategies. Topics will include presentations on what is happening at a number of colleges in the area of primary care veterinary education, clinical teaching tools, a clinical assessment workshop, a Swap Shop designed for sharing best teaching practices, innovations and overcoming challenges, accessible veterinary care in a primary care setting, and much, much more. –
The AAVMC's Primary Care Veterinary Educators (PCVE) subcommittee’s mission is to advance and inspire primary care veterinary education in order to prepare students for professional excellence in primary care veterinary medicine.
The goals of the PCVE subcommittee are to enhance primary care education programs at colleges of veterinary medicine, develop exceptional primary care educators, preparing career-ready veterinarians, and creating opportunities for collaboration between primary care veterinary educators and the profession.
