Why attend?

AVMA Convention 2022 is back in person this summer in historic Philadelphia! Taking place July 29 – August 2 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, this meeting has something for every background and interest. Everyone is welcome—it's your convention! Reunite with the veterinary profession, and gain an educational edge through best-in-class CE – including hands on labs and workshops, panels, and lectures taught by veterinary experts. Network with colleagues, make new friends, and discover products and services that will enhance your veterinary career.

Not only can you take advantage of customized CE tracks and the chance to deepen your professional connections, AVMA Convention is also your opportunity to step back from the day-to-day and rekindle your energy and passion for veterinary medicine. We can't wait to host you in the "City of Brotherly Love!"

Attend in-person or virtually

Unable to join us in person? We will once again be offering a virtual convention option, streaming over 100 CE sessions to attendees online. Streaming sessions will be available on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Courses will cover a variety of topics and can be viewed in the CE schedule. Just click on Search/Filter and select Live Streamed from Convention Center into Virtual Platform.

The livestreamed sessions will be recorded and available on the virtual platform through October 31, and attendees will be able to receive CE credit for them until that date.

AVMA CE credits are generally accepted by all states, but you should confirm specifics with your state board. Visit www.aavsb.org/dlr to locate the detailed CE license renewal requirements for your state veterinary board.
