Join us for Shortcourse on August 23-26, 2017

Shortcourse is an annual conference Christian Veterinary Mission offers veterinary professionals as a time to grow together, build relationships, worship, and be challenged in your profession. The event spans 3 days with seminars on topics ranging from ministry and witness through US veterinary practice, long-term international mission service, and short-term cross-cultural service in the USA and abroad. This is a great time to learn about CVM, hear from experienced veterinary professionals, meet other professionals like yourself, reconnect with old friends and share your experiences with others. If you have attended Shortcourse in the past, consider attending this year and participating in a different seminar track.

 NEW! This year we have a special focus on:

  • Compassion Fatigue
  • Reflective Listening - and how this can help you, your clients and your patients
  • Teaching Tomorrow's Veterinarians in Resource-Poor Settings Internationally
  • Veterinary Mental Health and Resilience
  • Security Precautions
  • Seminars on US practice, short-term and long-term missions

We are pleased to announce that we are offering 7.5 hours of RACE accredited CE at our Shortcourse this year!!  The four RACE approved sessions are “Teaching Tomorrow’s Veterinarians in Resource-Poor Situations”, “Common Sense Security for International Veterinary Travel”  “Veterinary Mental Health and Resilience” and “Reflective Listening in Times of Emotional Intensity”.

This program 344-29671 is approved by the AAVSB RACE to offer a total of 7.50 CE Credits (7.50 max) being available to any one veterinarian: and/or 7.50 Veterinary Technician CE Credits (7.50 max). This RACE approval is for the subject matter categories of:
Category One: Scientific

Category Three: Non-Scientific-Practice Management/Professional Development using the delivery method of Seminar/Lecture. This approval is valid in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB RACE; however, participants are responsible for ascertaining each board's CE requirements. RACE does not "accredit" or "endorse" or "certify" any program or person, nor does RACE approval validate the content of the program."

We invite you to join us this year at Shortcourse to see what God is doing through veterinary medicine around the world and in local practices.
