Dates & Deadlines

We are excited to invite you to the 6th annual ACVECC VetCOT Veterinary Trauma & Critical Care Symposium April 9-11, 2021 which will be held virtually this year. This conference is a unique opportunity for those with an interest in trauma medicine and surgery to share ideas, experiences, and expertise in a smaller forum conducive to discussion and collaboration. While the target audience is veterinary specialists (DACVECC, DACVS, DACVAA), we strongly encourage residents (ACVECC, ACVS, ACVAA), Emergency clinicians, ECC technicians, and allied specialists and residents (ACVO, ACVIM-neurology, ACVSMR, ACVR) to attend. Although the focus is small animal trauma, our large animal colleagues are encouraged to attend.

Accepted abstracts are published annually in JVECC.

Tentative schedule (note: Times listed are Mountain Time)

Friday afternoon, April 9, 1:00-5:30 PM MT: VetCOT subcommittees meetings– all are welcome to attend!

Saturday and Sunday, April 10-11: Trauma abstracts and Case reports, Case review interactive panel, updates on a variety of trauma initiatives, “How I treat…” vignettes with DVM/VMD and MD panel to follow, and more!
