The conference is a week-long program featuring 56 hours of continuing education. In 2017, the program will include topics such as small animals/pocket pets, exotics, equine medicine, production animals, business management and wellness in the profession. New for 2017 will be a pre-conference echocardiography wet lab.

The program is open to veterinary professionals from all specialties, RUSVM alumni, and veterinary technicians. In the past, the conference has hosted hundreds of attendees from all over the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, and St. Kitts.

Your learning doesn’t have to stop with the CE sessions—the conference also gives you an opportunity to explore the rich culture of St. Kitts (and its sister island, Nevis) either on your own or at one of the scheduled social events.

An overall excellent experience with relevant CE and plenty of time left over to relax.

- Dr. Sir, Veterinarian and 2016 WIVC attendee
