On May 22, 2016, hosted the second annual CE Symposium – an event founded on AVES dedication to providing veterinary continuing education for our central Texas community.
Why does AVES provide a veterinary continuing education symposium?
In Texas, the State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners requires 17 hours of continuing education per year for every veterinarian. To help our community reach this goal and expand their expertise, AVES believes in providing diverse and intensive veterinary continuing education opportunities.
Part of carrying out that vision is our annual AVES CE Symposium. This all day event provides central Texas veterinarians with 7 hours of continuing education, and includes a broad range of lecture topics from AVES specialists within various departments, like Surgery and Orthopedics, Internal Medicine, Critical Care, Oncology, and Dentistry.
