After a successful year of veterinary conferences, dvm360® is looking forward to a new year filled with adventures and career developments as we host new conferences in new cities throughout 2023.

We also plan to bring back great events such as Fetch dvm360® conferences in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Kansas City, Missouri, plus the Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference (ACVC) in Atlantic City, New Jersey. dvm360® is honored to host conferences across the US and offer attendees more continuing education (CE) opportunities. This year there will be more hands-on laboratory opportunities in varying topics such as ultrasound technology and dentistry.

Fetch dvm360® conferences

Our regular round of Fetch dvm360® conferences is back in 2023 with a new location for the West Coast: Long Beach, California, scheduled for December 1 to 3. On the East Coast, the Fetch conference will be in Charlotte, North Carolina, March 24 to 26. For the Midwest, the Fetch dvm360® conference will be in Kansas City, Missouri, August 25 to 27.

Join us at any of these Fetch conference locations for an engaging educational experience. Earn CE credits and network with peers, friends, faculty, and exhibitors. We provide interactive sessions that help attendees walk away retaining more information, as well as sessions that focus on well-being and communication skills.

In a previous interview with dvm360®, Molly McAllister, DVM, MPH, chief medical officer at Banfield Pet Hospital and founder of the Diversify Veterinary Medicine Coalition, said, “I love Fetch as a chance to reconnect with friends and colleagues, learn from inspiring new thought leaders, and energize myself with new ideas and knowledge about everything from clinical medicine to well-being to leadership and more. It is a place for passionate vet professionals and game changers to share ideas and excitement, and I always leave feeling recharged and inspired!”

Directions in Veterinary Medicine

In June 2022, we launched our very first Directions in Veterinary Medicine (DIVM) symposium—a 2-day, single- track conference with a targeted focus. Sessions included deep dives into anesthesiology, integrative medicine, pain management, sports medicine, and virtual care. Following its success, DIVM returns in 2023 with 3 new locations and dates. DIVM in Arlington, Virginia, April 21 to 22, will focus on emergency and critical care topics. DIVM in Miami, Florida, May 19 to 20, will focus on pain management. DIVM in Nashville, Tennessee, September 15 and 16, will focus on oncology and nutrition topics.

From the 2022 DIVM conference in Indianapolis, Indiana, keynote speaker Matthew Brunke, DVM, DACVSMR, CCRP, CVPP, CVA, told dvm360®, “I’m thankful it’s a small gathering. I like the fact that it’s a single track... By having a nice, focused group, where it’s just one powerhouse presenter after another...I’m not missing out because I’m not in somebody else’s lecture room.”

Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference

Another dvm360® conference staple, Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference (ACVC) returns in 2023 to Atlantic City, New Jersey, October 9 to 11. Like our Fetch conferences, ACVC provides attendees with engaging sessions to earn CE credits and networking opportunities with peers, friends, faculty, and exhibitors.

Craig Clifford, MS, DVM, DACVIM (oncology), medical oncologist at BluePearl Specialty and Emergency Pet Hospital and director of BluePearl Science, was one of our keynote speakers in 2022. “I’ve been blessed to lecture at ACVC many, many years. And to be a keynote, I’m extremely grateful and honored,” he said in a previous interview with dvm360®.
