The ACVO offers a course customized to the needs of general practitioners each year in conjunction with their annual conference. We invite regional general practice veterinarians who wish to gain applicable knowledge in up-to-date veterinary ophthalmology practice to attend the 8 hour CE session. Registrants do not have to be registered for the general conference to attend.

Special student rate! If you are currently enrolled in a veterinary program you may attend this session at half price. Just register on the general meeting form and select the appropriate 'Student fee' under the GP Course section. Students will need to email or fax proof of current enrollment before attending on site, or bring the letter to the registration desk if walk-up registering.
