We are excited to invite you to the annual ACVECC VetCOT Veterinary Trauma & Critical Care Symposium March 25-27, 2022, in Las Vegas, NV. The conference will be held in conjunction with the ACVECC PGR/MDR (Mar 24-25, 2022) and the Trauma, Critical Care & Acute Care Surgery Conference (March 28-30, 2022). 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.
The "Call for Abstracts" is also attached. Accepted abstracts are published annually in JVECC.
Please note that the deadline for abstract or case report submission has been extended to 11:59 pm (EST), Monday January 17, 2022.
Friday afternoon, March 25, 1:00-5:30 PM: VetCOT subcommittees meetings– all are welcome to attend! A Zoom link to attend remotely will also be provided.
Saturday March 26, 9:00 AM-5:30 PM: Conference officially begins. Trauma abstracts and Case reports, DACVECC panel case discussion, MD trauma surgeon presentation, and more. Dinner for those interested at local restaurant (optional).
Sunday March 27, 8:30 – 5:30 PM: Year in Review, Performance Improvement and Patient Safety program vignettes, overlapping sessions with Trauma-Critical Care conference, DVM/VMD and MD joint presentations with panel to follow, and more!
