June Conference

The focal point for the College's continuing education program is the June Conference, held every second year in Saskatoon, Sask. This three-day event provides general practitioners with up-to-date information relating to health issues in food animals, horses, small animals and humans.

The next June Conference will be held in June 2015 at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in conjunction with the veterinary college's 50th anniversary celebrations. Please check back in early 2015 for further updates about the conference's program, schedule and speakers.

Continuing Education Courses and Seminars

Each year, WCVM helps to organize continuing education courses or seminars for specialized practitioner associations.

Visiting Lecturer and Visitorship Program

The College's Visiting Lecturer and Visitorship program brings in a steady stream of prominent clinicians, researchers and resource people from all over the world to Western Canada. These visitors enhance the College's undergraduate and graduate teaching programs, its research program, and its clinical and diagnostic services. On occasion, they also support continuing education programs for western veterinary associations.
