VETERINARY CARDIOVASCULAR SOCIETY

SPRING MEETING

WEDNESDAY 23RD MARCH 2022

 

We are delighted to announce our upcoming pre-BSAVA meeting. This will be a hybrid meeting, which will be hosted at the Manchester Central Convention Complex and online. We are looking forward to welcoming those who wish to attend face-to-face. We will also be streaming the meeting live for those delegates who are unable to attend in person. 

The programme is varied this year, with discussions focused on therapeutics alongside a range of current cardiac topics. We are excited to see our VCS chairman Geoff Culshaw presenting some of the latest novel drugs for heart failure as well as expert panels attempting to determine the fate of ACE inhibition in human and veterinary cardiology!

Registration is available from 5th February 2022 and the fees are: Members £165, non-members £220. Online only will be £110.00 for Members and £150 for non-members.  Digital proceedings is included. (We are trying to decrease our carbon footprint so there are no printed proceedings this time.)  Recordings will be available for 4 weeks after the event so registered delegates can watch them on demand.

We are really pleased to be welcoming back our sponsors this Spring!  

Membership of the Veterinary Cardiovascular Society is open to any veterinary surgeon or veterinary nurse from the UK and abroad with a particular interest in cardiology.  Annual VCS membership is £25 (£20 if paid by standing order).  We are an enthusiastic and friendly group, normally holding two meetings a year, a one-day pre-BSAVA Congress Spring meeting at Manchester and a two-day Autumn meeting in November. 

 

We offer travel bursaries to VCS members to help them attend the ECVIM or ACVIM Congresses (two bursaries are available annually for each of these conferences).  Applications will be available until the end of February.

 

 We also provide, in conjunction with BreathEazy, a grant in memory of Alistair Gibson an esteemed colleague who sadly passed away in 2020. This grant is to fund further education in cardiology.
