AVMA Virtual Convention 2021 brings the best features of AVMA's in-person events online, so you can take part no matter where you are! Following the popularity and success of last year's all-virtual event, this year's convention promises to be just as engaging, inspiring, and educational as any in-person meeting.
Virtual Convention has something for every background and interest. Everyone is welcome—it's your convention and it's Powered By You! Gain an educational edge through best-in-class CE, workshops, panels, and lectures taught by experts in veterinary medicine. 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, reconnect with your veterinary community, and rekindle your passion for veterinary medicine.
