Two Evening CE Series Offered

Small Animal Surgery and Small Animal Medicine

The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine is now offering two evening continuing education series. The Small Animal Surgery Series will introduce cutting edge techniques such as minimally invasive surgery, interventional radiology, and canine physical rehabilitation, and their responsible clinicians, to the referring veterinarian. Topics in soft tissue surgery, orthopedics and neurosurgery will also be addressed. The series will be instructed by faculty from Cardiology, Neurology and Small Animal Surgery services. The second series, Small Animal Medicine, will cover a variety of topics to keep small animal practitioners abreast of the most up-to-date information available in the practice of veterinary medicine. Both series are intended for veterinarians and veterinary technicians.

All courses will be conducted Tuesdays, once per month for each series from 7 to 9 p.m. at the College of Veterinary Medicine. Each course in this series is certified for two hours of continuing education credit, and registration is $50 per session. Visit the Continuing Education web site to register and view each series' schedule.
