2021
From: 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

The university has announced the continuation of social distancing and gathering guidelines for the Spring 2021 semester. The safety of everyone within the College of Veterinary Medicine community is our top priority.  As a result, we will not be holding this event as previously scheduled. We will transition to a lecture-based conference focused on common surgeries performed by general practitioners.  Talks will include theory, as well as information on technique, and offer basic and cutting edge information about each topic.

This conference will be held live via ZOOM and offer 9 hours of CE credit!
