VITA: Breathing New Life into Veterinary Continuing Education

At the Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (VMBS), we’re breathing new life into veterinary continuing education (CE). VITA will give you the opportunity to learn new and innovative skills that you can take back to your clinic on Monday morning. Through interactive lectures, hands-on learning, small group discussions, and social opportunities, our goal is to help you discover knowledge and tools that will continue your growth as a veterinarian or veterinary technician. We hope you’ll join us for this annual conference full of learning opportunities!
