Why attend?

AVMA Convention 2022 is back in person this summer in historic Philadelphia! Taking place July 29 – August 2, 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!”

Unable to join us in person? We will once again be offering a virtual convention option, streaming select education sessions to attendees online. More information coming soon.
