Oklahoma State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine’s College of Veterinary Medicine’s annual Veterinary Medicine Fall Education Conference is held on Saturday, November 6th and Sunday, November 7th.

The Fall Conference offers two participation options – a traditional personal option and a new virtual option. Those who participate virtually will participate through Zoom. Those attending in person will meet at the Wes Watkins Center on the OSU Stillwater campus. Participants select their type of presence when registering, which is now open.

“We are delighted to host the event in person this fall,” said Dr. Rosslyn Biggs, Director of Education and Beef Cattle Enlargement Specialist at the Veterinary School. “It will be a great opportunity for those involved to improve their veterinary skills and visit fellow practitioners.”

Attendees can earn up to 14 hours of training for the two-day conference. The OSU CVM Class of 1963 Distinguished Lectureship with USDA One Health Coordinator Dr. Joseph Anneli will be represented. Next, Assistant Professor of Veterinary Pathobiology, Dr. Jennifer Rudd, (OSU CVM 2011) will present “One Health: Reflections on an Epic Year – The Crucial Role of the Veterinarian during COVID-19”, followed by a Veterinary COVID-19 panel at the end of the One Health-focused sessions.

“The college was able to put together a great group of speakers to ensure attendees get the most of their experience,” said Biggs.

From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, participants will attend sessions covering a wide range of veterinary issues. The conference consists of four tracks: Companion Animal, Forage Animal, Horse and General, whereby the participants can choose their preferences. The exhibition hall will be open on Saturday so that attendees can take a tour and meet with various companies in the veterinary sector.
