VMC Animal Health Education Series

A dog being examinedLaunched in fall 2020, the VMC Animal Health Education Series is a virtual event series that covers a range of topics from practical tips of things to look for in your pet to updates on leading clinical research.

Led by our expert clinicians and researchers, these presentations provide a deeper look at relevant topics in veterinary medicine. We hope you’ll join us to learn more and ask questions in those moments in between appointments.

The series is free and will remain virtual until it is safe to gather in groups again. Sign up below using the registration link. All events will be held over zoom until further notice.
