Continuing Education

According to estimates, veterinary medical knowledge doubles every five years. While it can be daunting – and exciting – to keep current with this explosion of information, the Oregon Veterinary Medical Association can help you stay on the cutting edge of education.

Continuing Education Calendar

We have compiled this calendar of other educational opportunities in Oregon as well as around the country. These programs may be of interest to both veterinarians and practice staff.
