COVID-19 Update

With the global impact of COVID-19 and the postponement of the 2020 ACVIM North American Neuroscience Course (Brain Camp) until summer 2022, we understand that this is an extremely challenging time for residents and has been very disruptive to resident training. As a result, we are delivering a portion of the ACVIM North American Neuroscience Course (Brain Camp) as an online program.
