VMC Animal Health Education Series

A dog being examined

Launched in fall 2020, the VMC Animal Health Education Series (AHES) 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.
