Mark your calendars for the 2017 Veterinary Technician Symposium set for Sunday, March 26, 2017! Purdue Veterinary Medicine hosts this annual day-long symposium to provide veterinary assistants, veterinary technician students, and veterinary technicians an opportunity to obtain approved continuing education (CE) credits. The Veterinary Technician Symposium gives attendees opportunities to learn practical information that can be applied in clinical practice with a variety of lecture topics centered on clinical practice, small animal medicine, large animal medicine, cardiology, and behavior; attend a special “lunch and lecture;” network with colleagues from veterinary facilities throughout Indiana and surrounding states; and meet PVM faculty and staff. Past attendees cited this symposium as "extremely valuable," commenting on the high quality of speakers, practicality of the topics and the great value for the cost.

Last year’s symposium featured topics including CPR, triage, uncommon conditions that require surgical intervention, IDDs, the future of veterinary medicine, feline lower urinary disease management, pacemaker therapy, and supporting behavior patient management throughout the hospital. Attendees also had the option to go on a tour of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. This year is shaping up to be just as educational and exciting! Be on the lookout for online registration to open in November 2016.

Seven continuing education (CE) credits are available with this symposium.
