Top speakers to showcase innovation at CPD congress

VetsNorth is taking place on 12-13 June at the MMU Business School in Manchester. Veterinary Practice readers can save 15 percent at registration with the code VPMAG15.

The small animal surgery, small animal medicine and veterinary nursing lecture theatres at VetsNorth 2019
are set to feature an unmissable programme of strong content across a range of subjects.

Rather than feeling lost in the crowd, the friendly regional scale of VetsNorth provides plenty of opportunities for face-to-face engagement with speakers, allowing you to seek real, individual advice on hot topics and cases you are facing in practice.

The event this year centres on three major pillars – the endocrine system, emergency medicine and surgery and emergency and critical care nursing. Attendees are looking forward to an event packed with cutting edge CPD lectures, Q&A opportunities with world-class speakers as well as social networking breaks to forge strong relationships with new and existing contacts.

The VetsNorth speakers have been selected for their outstanding expertise to ensure that you will benefit from the latest insight and practical advice on each of the programme topics.

As well as obtaining CPD hours, VetsNorth attendees will gain an in depth understanding of how to apply advanced techniques in practice, together with a broad range of knowledge in each topic to boost their performance and confidence going forward in their career.

The VetsNorth CPD programme can be viewed here and tickets can be purchased here. Readers of Veterinary Practice can benefit from a 15 percent discount on all ticket types by using code VPMAG15 at checkout.
