Continuing Education

About Continuing Education

The VMCVM's continuing education (CE) programs offer diverse lectures of veterinary focus that also include topics in public health and wellness. We are committed to providing quality medicine and information that enables veterinary and public health professionals the means to deliver comprehensive care to their patients and beyond. These programs aim to present material, demonstrate procedures, and introduce new faculty and services in a way that is beneficial for the busy general practitioner, as well as to equip attendees with the tools necessary to develop and succeed in their professional and personal lives.

VMCVM Equine Lecture Series

Tuesdays, Feb. 2 – March 9, 2021
6:30–7:30 p.m.

Register for all sessions

We recognize that it has been a difficult and challenging past year and so have decided to waive fees for these CE lectures. Instead, we ask that you consider a donation to the VMCVM Wellness Memorial Fund in the amount that you would normally pay for registration. This donation can be made when you register. The suggested voluntary donation is $20 per credit or $100 for the entire program.

Our memorial website will be finalized shortly; in the interim, if you would like to submit a message in memory of a loved one or colleague, please submit it here. Your message will be added to the website when it is completed.

Especially during a difficult time, thank you for promoting wellness in our veterinary community.

Our clinicians would like to address your questions and concerns. If you would like to submit a relevant case question related to a CE topic below, please email Cassie Wagner at cwwagner@vt.edu.
