Was it just me, or didn’t you just love cracking open a brand-new textbook? The thought of the education that awaited in that book always excited me (with the strong exception of organic chemistry). Buying a new Trapper Keeper and making sure I had the brown paper bag book covers energized me for a new school year—and if you know, you know. Advancing our medical knowledge is still exciting and, as veterinarians, we have taken an oath to continue learning day in and day out.

One of many aspects I love about veterinary medicine is the ability to continue to learn, find a new niche with your skill set, and identify new opportunities to grow personally and professionally. As a continuing education organization, dvm360® strives to raise the bar and constantly challenge our colleagues with new information. We also recognize that many of us digest content and education differently. Let’s face it—we are busy! Life is busy. Work is busy. You blink, and your children are already in college! But one thing is certain: We here at dvm360® will be providing different and emerging ways for you to learn and evolve throughout your professional career.

Here are some ways the dvm360® organization is providing you with various continuing education (CE) platforms and other informational resources.

Live webinars

We tend to average 1 to 2 live webinars a week. We have live evening webinars (1 hour of CE credit) and live lunch-and-learn webinars (0.5 hours of CE credit). These distance-learning sessions are a great way for you to interact with the thought leader and moderator.

On-demand webinars

On-demand webinars. Within approximately 7 days of being presented, recordings of our live webinars are available and stay accessible for 1 year on our dvm360® Flex™ website. This complimentary opportunity allows you to view hours of non-interactive distance-learning sessions.

In-book CE articles

We are proud to offer CE articles within our dvm360® magazine publication for 1 hour of CE credit. Be sure to obtain your complimentary subscription to the magazine by visiting our website www.dvm360.com and clicking on “Subscriptions.”

The Vet Blast Podcast

We know many of you enjoy listening to podcasts while driving to work, exercising, or decompressing, and these 20- to 30-minute episodes are a great way for you to stay on top of the latest information in veterinary medicine. These podcasts also offer opportunities to obtain CE credit. If you’re interested in being a guest on the podcast, email me at achristman@mhlifesciences.com.

Our upcoming Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference® (ACVC)

We host multiple live events throughout the year and are looking forward to our next conference. ACVC will be held October 10 to October 12, 2022, in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Can’t make it to ACVC? Our next conference after ACVC is Fetch dvm360® in San Diego, California, from December 2 to December 4, 2022. Live events are a fantastic way for you to hang out with colleagues, make new friends, and chat with wonderful exhibitors from all over the world. It’s great seeing so many of you in person, and the feedback has been fantastic. Thank you for making our live events fun, successful, and memorable!

dvm360® Live!

This is a fun, half-hour talk show video program filmed in studio at our headquarters in New Jersey. Guests have unique ways of delivering their lessons and messages. The show highlights the wonderful aspects of veterinarians in and out of the exam room. Although it does not offer CE credit, it’s a great way to catch up on newsworthy stories and feel proud to be in this profession.

Social media

We love sharing your posts. Your content and educational pieces are incredible! These are practical and fun ways to cross-promote each other’s brands and highlight the wonderful cases you have worked on. Be sure to tag us on Instagram (@dvm360), Facebook (@dvm360), TikTok (@dvm360), or Twitter (@dvm360). We’d be happy to share your content pieces.

As you can see, we provide you with many resources for learning and networking. If you have any ideas or thoughts on how we can help close educational gaps for you and your team, please let us know. We are here to help. On behalf of dvm360®, we wish your children a bright school year and our future veterinary colleagues a great year in school!
