About The Symposium

On January 27-28, 2018, join us for our annual Veterinary Technician Symposium. Designed by technicians for technicians, attendees can choose from two simultaneous lectures that will provide up-to-date information, improve their skills, and broaden their knowledge of veterinary medicine. Three interactive laboratories will supply hands-on, personalized learning. This event is a must-attend for the serious technician.
