Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of VSS Management, the VSS Conference Committee invites you to consider joining us at the 2017 VSS Annual Veterinary Conference.

This conference will be the culmination of almost twelve months’ effort to bring a clinically-focussed, annual event to South East Queensland - facilitating the networking of Australia’s Veterinary Industry.

With 5 international speakers including Emeritus Professor Richard Le Couteur (UC Davis), Professor Jane Sykes (UC Davis) and Professor Daniel Lewis (University of Florida), conference delegates will hear from some of the world’s leading experts in their field. The VSS Annual Conference will also boast 26 local speakers who, combined with the international speakers will deliver a total of 43 papers at the conference.

In the week leading up to the conference, there will be 3 days of Surgery Workshops and a full-day Ultrasound workshop that will provide plenty of hands-on learning. The entire event will be complimented by a social program for delegates to enjoy.

A complete program can be found on the conference website along with other relevant details. To view this important information and purchase tickets to the conference and workshops, please visit:
