ACVIM Forum Program Committee 

The ACVIM Forum Program Committee oversees the yearly ACVIM Forum program. Each specialty has its own subcommittee to develop specific programming. There are many important deadlines that the committee must meet for the program and these links provide key details for committee members. 

ACVIM Forum Program Philosophy
The development of a successful Forum program is achieved through the contributions of the six ACVIM Program Subcommittees and 15 Affiliated and Associated Special Interest Groups (AASIGs). The committees are guided by the program philosophy: Continuing education and basic/clinical research programs should be thematic, state-‐of-‐the-‐art, and relevant to the practice of specialties within the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.
