The UC Davis Center for Continuing Professional Education at the School of Veterinary Medicine will host the Fall Festival on September 24-25, 2016. The two-day event will encompass a wide array of both large and small animal topics, and will provide up to 16 hours of continuing education (CE) credits for both veterinarians and veterinary technicians.

Like most CE events offered by UC Davis, the Fall Festival is available via webinar for interested veterinarians and technicians to participate from anywhere in the world. Webinar attendees receive full CE credit since the event is live and interactive.

In total, 22 board-certified SVM faculty members will present 32 lectures and laboratory workshops covering dozens of topics on dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, horses, and more. Subjects will range from simple topics on improving participants’ clinics to in-depth surgical techniques that are changing the face of veterinary medicine.
