Earn CE Credit while experiencing Colorado’s Ski Country

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.
