BSAVA Virtual Congress Accredited by RACE
 25-27 March 2021

BSAVA Congress (25-27 March 2021), one of the world’s largest events for the small animal veterinary sector, has been accredited by the Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE®). 84 hours of the live programme have been approved for continuing education credit, with 25 hours available to an individual attendee. Accreditation is valid for the live content during the event and for two months afterwards, when it is available on the congress platform to review. This applies to both veterinarians and veterinary technicians.

An innovative blend of interactive content
“We are delighted that BSAVA Congress has been accredited by RACE®, giving American veterinary professionals access to our top quality CPD,” said BSAVA President Professor Ian Ramsey. “The sheer range and high quality of our speakers and content, together with our new, more dynamic format takes online learning to a new level.”
UK Speakers include Nicki Reed (feline nursing), Sarah Heath (behavioural alopecia), Adrian Boswood (asymptomatic cardiac patients), Jane Ladlow (BOAS surgery), Penny Watson (liver biopsies, feline triaditis), Dick White (the surgical team), Tim Nuttall (atopic dermatitis) and John Chitty (exotics), while the list of international speakers includes Mike Willard, Ernie Ward, Milinda Lommer, Daniel Pang and Jolle Kirpensteijn.

A wide range of clinical and current topics
Four simultaneous live streams and more than 150 speakers will deliver 80+ live sessions covering 24 different modules in a format that blends clinical, practical and interactive content. Most sessions will feature two speakers, each delivering short presentations followed by a live, audience-led conversation. This new approach means delegates can see the clinical challenges from different points of view and, most importantly, join in! But even if your time zone does not allow daytime viewing, rest assured, as both live and on-demand content will be available to delegates on the platform for 60 days (and then via the BSAVA Library).
BSAVA will also be providing practical resources such as client handouts for delegates to take back to their clinics to make it quicker and easier for delegates to share what they have learnt with their colleagues. Apart from a wide range of clinical topics, this year’s congress will also be covering sustainability issues through the module titled, ‘can the profession go green?’ It will also address timely topics such as recruitment and retention, and the impact of COVID and lockdown on practices and pet health.

Early bird registration ending soon!
Delegates can get their virtual party fix at Congress too, with a variety of fun and wellbeing sessions; there will be a virtual disco, live music from Mark Walby, yoga and meditation, a charity run, baking, magic and mindreading and a quiz.
Prices for BSAVA Virtual Congress start at just £99 (just under US$140) +VAT for BSAVA members. Veterinarians who are members of WSAVA through their national organisation – such as AVMA and CVMA – can claim a 10% discount on the BSAVA non-member rate. This early bird price expires on 8th March 2021.

William Magrane Basic Science Course
14 May – 12 July 2021

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Basic Science Course will once again be offered as a series of online lectures and discussions in 2021. We did this in 2020 and it was very well received by all attendees. We think that this year’s program is even better.
This year, we will again provide over 8 weeks of access to the material – 2 weeks of asynchronous access to about 100 hours of recorded lectures from the world’s leading experts in their fields (May 14-May 30, 2021), followed by 3 weeks of daily synchronous discussions with the speakers as well as image recognition sessions/”slide rounds” (May 31-June 18, 2021), and finishing with a further 3 weeks of asychronous access to all recorded lectures, discussions, and slide rounds (June 19-July 12, 2021).
