WSAVA World Congress Sydney 2007
15 years agoIn six short months, small animal veterinarians, scholars, nurses, and industry representatives will meet in the beautiful city of Sydney, Australia for the 32nd WSAVA World Congress on August 19-23, 2007. WSAVA World Congresses have focused on providing cutting edge continuing education (CE), drawing on the expertise of the global veterinary profession and this year is no exception. The 2007 Organizing Committee has put together an exciting scientific program that not only covers the core veterinary disciplines of medicine, surgery, ophthalmology, neurology, cardiology, dermatology, behaviour, reproduction, diagnostic imaging, anesthetiology, critical care, densitstry, and infectious disease, but adds in exciting new programs covering immunogenetics, acupuncture, and pharmacology. This complements four SOTALs (State of the Art Lectures), an Animal Welfare forum covering alternatives to animal use in experimentation, the WSAVA Awards Lectures, and the abstracts and poster sessions. But wonderful CE is only half the charm – the other lies in the land down under itself and the organizing committee has arranged for a number of pre or post-congress tours, including the Great Barrier Reef and Ayers Rock to name but a few. For the more adventurous, you can even bungee jump or look forward to climbing the “Coathanger” (Sydney Harbour bridge). So join us for the WSAVA Congress in the “land down under” and leave a “fair dinkum” (genius). Because as Di Sheehan of the organizing committee so aptly puts it “just how long can you keep saying ‘one day I’ll go to Sydney, Australia?’” That day has come! Proceedings Available On-Line Proceedings from the WSAVA/FECAVA/CSAVA 2006 World Congress are now available on-line via the WSAVA website (link on the right-hand column of the Homepage). Contents include Congress abstracts as well as proceedings from 268 lectures covering 29 different disciplines by 93 speakers. Disciplines covered include anesthesiology, behaviour, cardiology, clinical immunology, clinical nutrition, clinical pathology, clinical pharmacology/toxicology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, diagnostic imaging, endocrinology, exotic animal medicine, gastroenterology, infectious/parasitic disease, nephrology/urology, neurology/neurosurgery, oncology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, reproduction, respiratory medicine, and soft-tissue surgery. Proceedings are also available for the animal welfare forum as well as the practice management track and 6 separate State of the Art Lectures (SOTAL) providing cutting-edge information on current topics from world-renowned veterinary scientists. The WSAVA World Congress proceedings are also available online in a partnership with IVIS (International Veterinary Information Service), a New York based, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the improvement of animal care by providing up-to-date, clinical information to veterinarians, veterinary students, and animal health professionals, WSAVA. Within the first week of online access, the 2006 WSAVA World Congress proceedings enjoyed greater than 6,000 visits with the most popular article being Update on Inflammatory Bowel Disease by Dr. Alex German from Liverpool, UK.
