Ostrander Staff Active in Continuing Education

Dec 2, 2012

Here at the Ostrander Veterinary Clinic, we believe it is our responsibility to remain current and progressive in veterinary medicine. Much of this is done through continuing education through online articles and subscriptions, monthly “hot topic” staff meetings as well as various conferences and courses offered throughout the year. Some of the upcoming continuing education events include:

Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians – Toronto, February 2012
All of our Veterinary Technicians attended this annual conference with varied interests in a multitude of topics including hematology, anethesia, behaviour and internal medicine.

Ontario Veterinary Medical Association – Annual Conference, Toronto, January 2012
Dr. Julie Boutin, Dr. Karla Josephson, Dr. Julia Hodgins, Dr. Glenna MacGregor, and Dr. Taryn MacIntyre all attended this conference this year. Topics discussed included small animal internal medicine, surgery, and anesthesia.

Small Ruminant Veterinarians of Ontario – various events in 2011 and 2012
Dr Julia Hodgins has participated in several events organized by the Small Ruminant Veterinarians of Ontario over the past year. Topics at these events have included small ruminant abortion, care of newborn lambs, CAE, and care of camelids. Dr. Hodgins is an active member of the board of directors of this organization. Dr. Karla Josephson also attended some of these lectures.

Golden Triangle Lecture Series
Our small animal veterinarians all take turns attending these lectures on a monthly basis. Topics of these lectures have included ophthalmology, oncology, infectious disease control, and behaviour.
