Vet Med's virtual seminar a success

Wednesday, July 13, 2022

The Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine’s annual Summer Seminar was held June 24-25, 2022.

In collaboration with the Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association, the seminar offered continuing education virtually via Zoom to more than 100 veterinarians and technicians.

Dr. Rosslyn Biggs, director of continuing education and beef cattle extension specialist at the CVM, said the virtual seminar is a great benefit to participants.

“Through our collaboration with the Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association and the use of virtual platforms, we have been able to provide a quality cost-effective continuing education meeting accessible to attendees everywhere,” Biggs said.

The seminar began Friday evening with participants learning more about the American Veterinary Medical Association, OVMA’s parent organization, from the OVMA President-Elect, Dr. Lori Teller.

An open panel with Oklahoma legislators followed Teller’s presentation. Senators Casey Murdock and Brent Howard, and Representatives Kyle Hilbert and Toni Hasenbeck, addressed questions including what they are doing to help veterinarians and small businesses in Oklahoma. Participants found the discussion with the legislative panel informative and were glad to hear that legislators are “in the trenches working for veterinary medical doctors.”

Summer Seminar sessions covered a variety of topics in both small and large animal medicine. The large animal track covered topics such as anthelmintic resistance in cattle, use of reproductive hormones in cattle and nutritional management for challenged horses. The small animal track offered behavior management in dogs, nutritional management of canine epilepsy and updates in antiviral therapy.

Feedback was overwhelmingly positive for both the virtual presentation and sessions offered. Summer Seminar 2023 is set to continue as a virtual presentation.
