Oklahoma State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and the Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) recently held their annual Summer Seminar, successfully offering the continuing education opportunity virtually June 18-19.
“We had over 220 participants this year," said Dr. Rosslyn Biggs, director of continuing education and beef cattle extension specialist at the veterinary college. “We are delighted numbers increased greatly over the past year and look forward to continuing this trend.”
During the event, various speakers covered topics including antibiotic use in companion animals, tick-borne diseases, canine leptospirosis, dermatology, strategic pricing for veterinarians, the veterinarian’s place in the apiary world, parasites in ruminants and horses as well as equine asthma.
Dr. Lee Denney, OVMA president, said speakers did a phenomenal job and she was grateful for all of the work OSU and the OVMA did to make the event possible with little to no technical difficulties.
“The day went really well, and I think many people were happy with it,” Denney said. “It was really easy to click back and forth between the tracks to see which sessions you preferred, and the event ran very smoothly.”
Participants’ feedback from a post-seminar survey revealed the event to be a success.
“The coordinators did a great job pulling similar information together and made a well-balanced agenda,” responded one survey participant.
Another survey participant said they thought lots of information was given and they appreciated the new information picked up from each of the presenters.
“We are excited for next year and plan to bring in more speakers,” Biggs said. “We hope to have more practitioners participate and continue to learn so they can bring back knowledge to their practice all while completing their continued education requirements.”
