Free international congress for veterinarians, veterinary nurses and animal health technicians working with cats

One silver lining to emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic is the accessibility of high-quality continuing education for veterinarians, animal health technicians and veterinary nurses. While face to face events have been shelved, which is disappointing, the environment also wins with the reduction in international airline traffic (for the time being). And CPD is more affordable when we need it to be.

The International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM) is hosting the world’s first free virtual feline congress for those of us who provide health care to feline patients. This means that you will be able to watch over 30 hours of CPD from your home – or your practice, or your car – even, finally, in the company of your cat (or dog, or horse).

The Congress will run from Saturday August 8-11, with content remaining available on demand until September 11 (for those of us in different time zones or attending to the real-time needs of our feline patients on weekends).

I’m excited to have been invited as one of the speakers.

Thanks to generous sponsorship the Congress is free to ISFM members and non-members. It is a very good opportunity to attend an international meeting of veterinary professionals from around the globe who share a commitment to improving cat care.
