I joined the TAVM in January of 1976 after graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in May of 1975 and have been a continuous member ever since. The continuing education lectures were (still are) equivalent to the many other lectures that I have attended over the years but at a fraction of the cost. I have enjoyed meeting and talking to several of the many fine speakers that we have been blessed with for over forty years ... speakers who have provided top quality lecture notes and who have been available to answer personal clinical questions privately if needed. A final comment must be made regarding the variety of fine food that is included with every lecture ... well done and thank you.
I believe attending the Toronto Academy of Veterinary Medicine CE program helps to keep me updated with the advances in medicine and surgery.
Learning new skills and ideas is a must in the ever-changing medical field!
I consider myself fortunate that his profession and passion coincide. The opportunity for ongoing learning has always been important to me and I enjoy attending Toronto Academy lectures because it offers a chance to meet with colleagues, chat about the management of cases and advance my skills. I have chosen The Academy lecture series as one of the ways I am able to keep my skills at a high level.
I feel that continuing education – staying current and new treatments, techniques and developing medicine – is vital to being able to provide appropriate veterinary care.
I believe CE is important for the veterinary community because medicine and science are always advancing, improving, and changing. Through TAVM’s continuing education program, practitioners can stay on top of new developments, to ensure that their patients benefit from these innovations.
