2022 ACVIM Forum

2022 Highlights & Recap


Feedback from our attendees:

"ACVIM Forum continues to be the best opportunity to get excellent CE in a variety of topics that provide the latest research and experience in veterinary medicine."
"It was so wonderful to reconnect with former residents and colleagues after such a long hiatus."
"ACVIM Forum is a great opportunity to improve my veterinary knowledge while engaging with colleagues."
"I have always returned from the ACVIM forum refreshed and ready to upgrade my veterinary work after attending."
"2022 ACVIM Forum in Texas was so special because it was a welcome renaissance after a rough two years. It reminded me of why I love this community and why I am so proud to be an ACVIM Diplomate. I look forward to future forums where we can connect with a new generation of future Diplomates and keep a great college going long past our lifetimes."

Specialty Symposium

For the first time in two years, the Specialty Symposium was held in person. The day kicked off with the Welcome Breakfast and ACVIM Annual Business Meeting, which all ACVIM Diplomates were invited to attend either in person or virtually via the livestream. Specialty sessions began after and continued throughout the day. Certificate Ceremonies and Luncheons for Cardiology, Neurology, SAIM and LAIM were held at noon, with Nutrition and Oncology ceremonies taking place in the evening. Each specialty recognized new Diplomates boarded in 2020, 2021 and 2022, with a total of 236 new Diplomates welcomed to the College.
The AIMVT Program for specialty technicians began in the afternoon with Technician Case Reports Sponsored by Hill's Pet Nutrition followed by Specialty Business Meetings. The day wrapped up in the evening, when attendees came together for the Specialty Symposium Reception Sponsored by Royal Canin and the ACVIM. 

Welcome, new ACVIM Diplomates!
