Shelter Medicine Veterinary Educators

PetSmart Charities' Shelter Medicine
Veterinary Educators Symposium

This symposium serves as a complement to the Primary Care Veterinary Educators Symposium run annually by the AAVMC. Although many PCVE attendees work in the shelter medicine field, this forum provides a focus on topics central to shelter medicine and community medicine programs, including a strong look at accessibility of care and the role that shelter medicine plays. Through a generous grant from PetSmart Charities, this symposium is occurring for its third year.

Please Note

  • Attendees registering for the Shelter Medicine Veterinary Educators symposium will need to make their own travel and hotel reservations. Although it is not a requirement to attend the PCVE Symposium, it is highly recommended to attend both events.
  • The hotel room block rate for PCVE will apply to guests staying at the conference hotel (Marriott Pullman) on Wednesday night. For more info on lodging and transportation, please visit the 2019 Primary Care Veterinary Educators Symposium website.
