The conference is a 4-day program of continuing education. In 2018, the program will include topics such as oncology, dermatology (large and small animal), ophthalmology, equine medicine and surgery, neurology, rehabilitation medicine, veterinary medicine & the law, veterinary business and management and more. Hands-on wet labs will also be available.

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

In 2018, the West Indies Veterinary Conference will be directly followed by the 3rd annual World Aquatic Veterinary Medical Association conference and biosecurity workshop (November 8th-12th).

I thoroughly enjoyed the conference, from the variety of topics offered to the numerous social activities. It was a great experience. I am looking forward to making it a tradition.

– Dr. Diana M. Gonzalez, Regional Consulting Veterinarian with Elanco Animal Health and 2017 WIVC attendee

WIVC is the perfect blend for quality CE, alumni reunion/gatherings, and enjoying St. Kitts island life.

– Dr. Leo Becker, Ross Grad (2014) and 2016 WIVC attendee
