The AVMA has announced a new webinar series to offer online continuing education covering topics requested by members.

Lead & Learn classes, available both live and on demand, provide insight and CE for veterinarians on topics such as cannabis, practice efficiency, personal finances, and leadership skills. The common thread of this series is leadership—specifically, equipping veterinarians with the expertise needed to serve as leaders in their practices and communities.

Each course offers one hour of CE credit. Sessions are free of charge, with live webinars presented at convenient hours in the daytime and evening. The live webinars are open to all veterinarians, and most classes also are available to AVMA members in recorded format on demand, beginning about a week after the live session.

Zomedica Pharmaceuticals Corp. is supporting the inaugural 2018 series as the educational sponsor. The series kicked off with a June 6 class on "Veterinarians as Leaders: Counseling Clients and Others About Assistance Animals" and a June 21 class on "Prescription Ethics: Your Clients, Patients, and Proposed Federal Mandates."

The rest of the initial schedule is as follows:

  • July 2 (6 p.m. CDT)—"Mission Possible: Creating a Culture of Wellbeing."
  • July 26 (noon CDT)—"Refresher on Adulting: Personal Finances."
  • Aug. 2 (noon CDT)—"The Evolution of Leadership: Personal Journeys and Lessons."
  • Aug. 23 (6 p.m. CDT)—"What Veterinarians Need to Know About Cannabis."
  • Sept. 11 (noon CDT)—"Practice Model Efficiency for Wellbeing and Profit."
