The second-annual Banfield Deans' Forum was hosted by Banfield, The Pet Hospital, in conjunction with the company's ninth-annual Educational Symposium, which welcomed almost 400 doctors worldwide.
"We initiated this forum so that veterinary college leadership could get together with Banfield, the largest national practice, to discuss issues affecting veterinary medicine today and in the future," says Dr. Randy LaFevre, Banfield vice president. "The Forum is also a great opportunity for veterinary college leadership to get together with us and discuss ways we all can work together to provide relevant general practice experience for students so they can prepare for successful futures as veterinarians."
The two-day forum included an awards dinner and reception where awards were granted to several veterinary colleges for outstanding partnerships with Banfield.
Recipients included Texas A&M University, Louisiana State University, Kansas State University and Tuskegee University.
