What attendees say

"I come to ACVIM Forum so that I can see what was happening as far as the cutting-edge research, to be able to interact with people who are specialists in things, and to be able to just get that additional insight that you can't really get anywhere else."
"Every year I find multiple pages of things I can use to be a better veterinarian and provide better care. The increased information and care that I can provide always pays for the cost of the conference many times over."

"The detail of the lectures and the quality of medicine that we're seeing and the quality of research that we're learning about is very high."
"The ACVIM Forum provides the most in-depth CE for specialists and active veterinary practitioners."
