Western Veterinary Conference’s continuing education program is heading east.
All-day classes on small animal dermatology or gastroenterology are scheduled for Sept. 20 and Oct. 25 in Oklahoma City and Indianapolis, respectively. Each earns six CE hours.
Moving CE chances from Las Vegas to other cities significantly cuts the travel trouble.
“Time and cost are the two most common obstacles to gaining continuing education in the veterinary profession,” said David Little, CEO of Western Veterinary Conference.
The new program, called WVC On The Road, is an outgrowth of the offerings at the annual Western Veterinary Conference and the year-round education at the nearby Oquendo Center.
“We are always looking for ways to connect veterinary professionals with the educational resources they need to gain knowledge and expertise throughout their careers,” Little said. “Beginning with the opening of the Oquendo Center and now with On The Road, WVC continues to enhance our commitment to year-round, continuing education opportunities.”
On the Road classes are likely in 2015, Little said.
The fall schedule is:
• Sept. 20 (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.): “Small Animal Dermatology: What’s New in Diagnosis & Treatment,” with James Noxon, DVM, Dipl. ACVIM, at the Renaissance Hotel Oklahoma City Convention Center.
• Oct. 25 (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.): “Small Animal Gastroenterology: What’s New in Diagnosis & Treatment,” with Michael S. Leib, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVIM, at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Indianapolis.
