Research Exchange

The ACVIM invites veterinary professionals to participate in the exchange of research and engage in partnerships to support ongoing or upcoming research endeavors. Formally known as the Research Colloquium, the ACVIM Research Exchange is designed to provide an opportunity to share and hear about ongoing and upcoming research, brainstorm on ways to overcome enrollment, data, and/or sample acquisition challenges, and foster connections between researchers with similar research interests as well as individuals in private practice to catalyze research collaboration.

Please join us during the LAIM Research Exchange and the SAIM-Nutrition Research Exchange and network with fellow colleagues across the ACVIM community.

"As a VTS, I enjoy the forum to obtain high-quality in-depth information. Not only from attending the doctor focused program, but the technician program as well. The technician program is top notch, given by quality speakers, many of which are VTSs, and gives great information to apply to my work every day. Meeting other people within the AIMVT specialty from all over is a lot of fun. Networking and collaborating with them is very rewarding. If you are considering achieving your Veterinary Technician Specialty, this is the conference for you."
