Upcoming CE Events
29 - 30Sep
Equine Hoof Health
A combination of lectures and live demonstrations will create an intense program that captivates those wanting to learn the “out of the box” thought process and help to start thinking their way through foot issues. Participants are able to see the simplicity of observing small details that they never considered. Participants will also be taught the value of the most informative radiographic views for the veterinarian-farrier team and the reason for always being alert to the ever-changing soft tissue parameters and how these are a reflection of the mechanical forces. These lessons are the basis for veterinarians and farriers to build their mechanical thought process that allows them to think through any and all foot issues step-by-step. Through the generosity of our sponsors, students enrolled in a DVM or CVT program may be eligible for discounted registration. Contact our office for more information: 608-265-5206.
07 - 08Oct
Clinician Scientist Training Workshop
The goal of this workshop is to provide entry level skills in designing veterinary clinical research studies. This one-and-a-half day short course is aimed at clinical residents in any veterinary specialty. Clinical instructors and other new faculty are also welcome, if their goal is entry-level exposure to clinical research skills. The School of Veterinary Medicine, UW-Madison, will organize the workshop, in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Institute for Clinical and Translational Research.
Cases of Animal Abuse, Cruelty, or Neglect
Veterinary professionals often find themselves in the center of cases involving animal abuse, cruelty, or neglect, particularly those involving multiple animals. It can be challenging and intimidating to navigate the complex ethical and legal questions that arise when we encounter these situations. How do we recognize cases of animal abuse, cruelty or neglect in our everyday practice? What types of responses are appropriate? When is reporting indicated, and who do we report our concerns to? How do we collect and provide meaningful evidence and expert opinions to authorities when required? This conference will provide attendees with opportunities to expand their technical, legal, and ethical knowledge base for responding to complex animal care situations through a wide variety of case studies and application of foundational veterinary skills to various techniques for case investigation.
Intracranial Disease in Dogs & Cats
Do you remember how to perform a neurologic examination? How good are your lesion localization skills for intracranial disease? Do cats have the same seizure patterns as dogs? Are there any new treatment options for cats with seizures? How confident are you about vestibular disease? If you think you need a refresher on any of these topics this conference is for you! We will cover those topics, plus more in this one day seminar. Come ready to practice your newly updated skills - there will be an open case discussion time at the end of the conference.
