See you next year!
SkiCE is one of CVMA’s longest running continuing education programs created in the early 1960s! Each January, this meeting brings together CVMA members and out-of-state veterinarians to enjoy Colorado’s world-class skiing, and to learn from some of the top minds in veterinary medicine. With education in the early morning and afternoon, attendees have plenty of time to hit the slopes, play in the snow, or just enjoy some free time. SkiCE offers veterinarians and technicians 14 hours of continuing education credit as well as a family-friendly experience at one of the world’s premier ski resorts.
Cancer is a disease of emotion and fear; get the tools you need to support your cancer patients with confidence. Join CVMA and Dr. Greg Ogilvie for an interactive weekend of oncology updates for the veterinarian and the entire veterinary health care team. This interactive, dynamic set of lectures is designed to explore how cancer patients and clients can be supported and treated using both the heart and science. Participants will learn how to dissolve client fears by using the most up-to-date therapies to enhance quality of life by battling discomfort, nausea, and anorexia while fighting cancer. Fighting cancer is a team effort; arm yourself with the techniques you need to develop and equip a veterinary health care team capable of providing total care for the patient during the fight against cancer.
