Congress 2018

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, and more practical, wet lab and small group sessions. The four-day event, which takes two years to plan, is the largest in Europe dedicated to the provision of small animal veterinary CPD, and hopes to top the almost 50,000 hours of CPD delivered in 2017.


Registration will open at the end of October.  Click below to see a preview of the Congress programme.
