About

The Center for Continuing Professional Education at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine is committed to “lifelong learning” programs. Our programs provide the most current information on recent developments in veterinary medicine and improve the quality of life for our veterinary patients. Seminars are available to veterinary professionals who are seeking new opportunities for advancing veterinary care, professional development and fulfilling their CE requirements. These programs are approved by the California Veterinary Medical Board in cooperation with University Extension, to meet the 36 hour bi-annual requirement for Veterinary Practitioners, and the 20 hour bi-annual requirement for RVTs.  We also offer programs for animal owners.
