16th Annual Shelter Medicine Symposium

January 27 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EST

We have reached capacity for the Shelter Medicine Symposium. Registration is now closed.

Mark your calendars for the 16th annual UGA CVM Shelter Medicine Symposium happening on January 27th, 2024! This one day event will feature speakers from multiple areas of shelter medicine. This year’s Symposium is free to attend, and all registrants will have breakfast and lunch provided. If you would like to receive a certificate for 7 hours CE credit, please choose that option when registering. The cost for the CE credit is $70. Partial hours of CE credit will not be offered. Current topics include mental health in shelter animals, FeLV testing guidelines, and reducing length of stay. The Symposium will take place at the UGA Veterinary Teaching Hospital located in Athens, GA. A registration link for Symposium will come out soon!

For catering purposes, we ask that you complete the registration so we can have an accurate count of attendees. This applies to free and paid attendees.

If you would be interested in purchasing a t-shirt on the day of the event, please respond appropriately to the question that is a part of the registration. The responses to that question will determine whether or not t-shirts will be available for purchase.

We will tentatively be offering tabling during the lunch hour! Please fill out the interest form below if your organization is interested in possibly tabling at this event. Tabling is not guaranteed and space is limited! Thank you all for your continued support of the Symposium, and we can’t wait to see you in January!

For your convenience, if you need to come into town on Friday night, we have a block of rooms at Homewood Suites by Hilton in downtown Athens. The block will close on December 27, 2023.
