2nd Biennial VETgirl U Veterinary Conference to be held in Chicago on August 5-8, 2021.

Unfortunately, due to the continued uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, along with local city, state, and federal government recommendations, we have elected to postpone VETgirl U 2020. The conference, originally scheduled for August 14-16, 2020, is postponed until August 5-8, 2021. It will still be at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago, IL. Please know we have been working around the clock to make this an incredible veterinary conference experience, but after reviewing all available information, we simply could not risk our VETgirl community, veterinary industry partners and exhibitors, and staff.

Plus, you deserve to be treated right when you get CE. That’s why we’ll be hosting at the luxurious Fairmont Chicago, a AAA Four-Diamond Luxury Hotel in Downtown Chicago, Illinois. So, save the date. Because it’s the only conference where you’re wined and dined, and taken care of in true VETgirl fashion. Awesome speakers, evening events to network and relax, FREE daycare, and free swag!

Registration Information

We’re still planning on making this THE BEST conference ever. Get 16-20 hours of RACE-approved CE in our TED-talk, case-based program, with topics ranging from surgery to anesthesia to emergency to derm to neuro! We promise it’ll be the most clinically relevant CE you get live (Well, besides our online webinars).
