Highlights & Recap
This year, the ACVIM Forum made the unprecedented transition to an online, interactive platform in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 ACVIM Forum On Demand program brought veterinary specialists, general practitioners, students and technicians from around the world together in one, virtual space. Our goal was to offer each and every attendee the same cutting-edge research, educational sessions, world-class speakers and access to the latest products and services that they have come to expect from the ACVIM Forum – available to access at any time, from anywhere. With over 3,400 virtual attendees, 368 speakers and 45,500+ CE credits earned, we feel confident in calling the 2020 ACVIM Forum On Demand a success.
A special thank you to our Industry Partners for their help in making the 2020 ACVIM Forum On Demand possible.
Welcome, New ACVIM Diplomates!
While we could not meet in person for the Specialty Symposium this year, we extended a warm welcome to our new ACVIM Diplomates virtually.
