2020 Call for Presenters

2020 Call for Presenters

The purpose of VECCS is to promote the advancement of knowledge and high standards of practice in veterinary emergency medicine and critical patient care. Toward this purpose, the VECCS provides a forum where individuals can come together with the intention of establishing and promoting uniform standards and guidelines, foster and encourage education, research and scientific progress in veterinary emergency and critical patient care, and disseminate information pertinent to veterinary emergency and critical care to all interested groups and organizations.

IVECCS is the place where this purpose is carried out. In conjunction with IVECCS, the ACVAA holds its annual education meeting, and the IVAPM and AVHTM present topics pertinent to their membership.

The theme for IVECCS 2020 is “Imaging in Emergency and Critical Care”.

The IVECCS Program Committee is seeking proposals for presentation topics and ideas for our IVECC Symposium, September 12-16, 2020, in St. Louis, MO. Veterinary and Technician experts in Emergency and Critical Care, Small and Large Animal Surgery and Medicine, Practice Management, and Exotic Medicine and Surgery are invited to submit their proposed topics and course descriptions for lecture, workshop and lab sessions.

The IVECCS program will cover a wide variety of topics with a wide variety of levels to satisfy the needs of veterinary and technician specialists, advanced clinicians and technicians, general practitioners, and support staff dedicated to, or having a special interest in, Emergency and Critical Care, Anesthesia and Analgesia, and Hematology and Transfusion Medicine.
