Featured Fetch dvm360 conference speakers

Unparalleled evidence-based continuing education is our primary purpose — and so we work with the best and brightest minds in veterinary medicine.

The bonus for you: These folks are also innovators and thought-leaders who combine the information you need with ideas to inspire you to make changes in your life and practice.

… But hey, that’s what every conference says, right? How can you really be sure you’re getting the very best CE experience?

The answer lies in the level of information you’re able to take away. Research on adult learning concepts makes it clear that we learn best in spurts (not, in fact, in quiet, boring, one-hour-long sessions). That’s why we have introduced facilitated learning to the Fetch dvm360 conference experience. With this method, we guarantee you’ll remember more from each session.

At Fetch dvm360 conference, we want to provide you with knowledge, skills, tools and relationships that give you what you need—so you can give pets what they need. Enter facilitation.

Facilitated sessions dismiss the usual linear lecture format in which the speaker downloads facts and figures into the brains of a passive, silent audience. Instead, facilitated sessions capitalize on the knowledge, experience and real-world issues you bring to the session by adding another person to the front of the room (the facilitator) to lead various activities and act as a bridge between you and the speaker.

These sessions also recognize that your brain needs breaks to stay engaged (and awake!) over an hour-long session.

You won’t just walk out of Fetch dvm360 facilitated sessions knowing you learned something great. You’ll leave with an action plan to apply at least one of those things you learned. And that’s far more valuable than just checking off the next box.
