The American College of Veterinary Surgeons' annual symposium has a new name for 2014: the ACVS Surgery Summit.
The rebranding is designed to reflect what organizers called the meeting's "expanded attendee demographics, invaluable educational and networking opportunities, energized offerings and atmosphere, and alluring destinations."
The veterinary surgical conference is scheduled for Oct. 15 to 18 in San Diego.
"The name 'ACVS Veterinary Symposium' has not adequately represented the scope, breath and absolute commitment to delivering the highest level of continuing education, said Nathaniel A. White II, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVS, the organization's director of continuing education. "The ACVS Surgery Summit highlights the focus of the meeting, so veterinarians know it is the premier veterinary surgery meeting, where the best surgical and allied medicine continuing education is presented by world-renowned professionals."
The meeting traditionally attracts veterinarians, veterinary technicians, practice staff members and students.
Veterinary surgeons from around the world will lead seminars, hands-on laboratories and panel discussions, providing attendees with up to 360 CE hours, according to the Tulsa Okla.-based ACVS.
Founded in 1965, ACVS sets standards for veterinary surgery and has awarded diplomate credentials to more than 1,700 veterinarians worldwide.
