VETgirl is excited to announce our 1st VETgirl U Hands-On Workshop hosted at the Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center in Levittown, Pa on Saturday – February 29th, 2020. The VETgirl ophthalmology guru, Dr. Shelby Reinstein, MS, DACVO will provide 7 hours of RACE-approved CE at our Surgical Ophthalmology CE Lecture & Wet Lab.
We promise it’ll be the most clinically relevant CE you get live (Well, besides our online webinars and VETgirl U 2020!). Plus, you deserve to be treated right when you get CE. That’s why we’ll provide both breakfast AND lunch in an inviting environment for learning and networking. Even better news…a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Frankie’s Friends with the Support of VSEC/BluePearl!
