We’re introducing a new tradition at the Texas A&M CVM! We’re consolidating several of our annual species-specific conferences and adding some tracks of interest to all veterinarians to create an Annual Texas A&M Veterinary CE Conference. This conference will afford you a greater choice of topics, a larger exhibit area, and an opportunity to network with more of your colleagues at one time. Don’t miss out on this inaugural event! Tracks this year will include Canine, Feline, Food Animal, Equine/Exotic, and Practice Management/ General. Friday, Jul. 17 will be dedicated exclusively to workshops and wet labs, including one of Dr. Bert Dodd’s popular canine dentistry wet labs.
For the first time in many years, we will have an equine session targeted at the general equine and mixed animal practitioner. The equine topics for both the laboratories and didactic sessions will be colic, ophthalmology, endocrine disease, wound healing—and more. The conditions addressed will be those seen on a regular basis by primary care equine veterinarians.
The Practice Management/General Track will stimulate you to think outside of your comfort zone, led by progressive, practicing veterinarians and leaders from related industries who will share with you how to make your practices more professionally and financially rewarding. We will also have sessions on how you can use the Internet to find information on challenging cases, as well as the mandatory training on opioid prescribing now required for license renewal. Be on the lookout for more details on the other tracks in future emails.
