RDVM Continuing Education Day


We are excited to welcome back our referring veterinarians on June 11, 2022!

This year, we’re offering a modified, hybrid event to best serve your needs:

Want to attend the small or large animal session in person? Just select that option when you register. On June 11, breakfast and check-in starts at 7:00 a.m., with lunch concluding at 2:00 p.m. Our hospital street address is 2089 SW 16th Ave., Gainesville, FL 32608.

Would you rather watch the content virtually? We’ll send you a link after June 11. The videos will be available for thirty days. You must register for this option.

FOR ALL VETERINARIANS: The popular three-hour Florida Rules and Laws and Pharmacy Dispensing Rules course will be offered virtually only! Our veterinary pharmacist Dr. Megan Eide and UF attorney Brian Boelens will present updates; we will email all registrants a link and you can view the content for thirty days. We are not offering this course onsite this year.

Due to current guidelines, we ask that referring veterinarians refrain from changing registration from virtual to in-person. We are happy to switch you to virtual if that option better meets your needs after registering.

Have questions? Reach out to Lynn Varner at varnerl@ufl.edu or (352) 294-4645.
