The ACVO offers a course customized to the needs of general practitioners each year in conjunction with its annual conference. We invite regional general practice veterinarians who wish to gain applicable knowledge in up-to-date veterinary ophthalmology practice to attend the eight and a half hour CE session. Registrants do not have to be registered for the general conference to attend.
Registration includes your 8.5-hour CE certificate, separate course proceedings, continental breakfast, lunch and access to vendor hall. You will also be provided online access to this courses' sessions post-meeting for up to three months, share these courses with practitioners in your office for no additional fee! This is unlimited access to an interactive, searchable video with speaker presentations synced with PowerPoint slides. Pre-registration is encouraged to guarantee space but walk-ups are welcome. Separate registration fee required.
This course is presented to provide ophthalmic education to non-boarded veterinarians that are interested in improving their ophthalmic knowledge for practice; when and how to treat, and when referrals are recommended. Recorded access to prior years’ presentations are available, review topics below.
