Congress 2018 Programme

BSAVA has expanded its 2018 Congress programme to include more than 450 lectures from world-renowned speakers, a new ‘Beyond the Clinics’ personal development stream,  more practical, wet lab and small group sessions and a new advanced practitioner stream.

Alongside the packed scientific programme is the launch of ‘Beyond the Clinics’ on the final day (Sunday), a non-clinical series of lectures on physical and mental health, financial planning and other areas of personal development, alongside a Careers Diversity Fair – all of which counts towards CPD. 

Congress will also feature a canine brachycephalic stream highlighting the latest thinking and clinical advice, rounded off with an evidence-based discussion from key opinion leaders. A full social programme will be announced later this year.
