The 2021 VMX conference will allow veterinary and technician students to attend digitally for free due to sponsorship from Banfield Pet Hospital.
Hosted by the North American Veterinary Community (NAVC), the conference will take in place in January in Orlando, Florida. There, a new virtual platform, featuring a 3D experience, interactive educational programming, networking, and interactive formats will be available. This is the second year that a program such as this has existed to allow students access to new technology, techniques, and educational speakers.
“At Banfield, we know the significant impact student debt can have on those in veterinary school and across the industry,” said Melissa Marshall, vice president of people and organization at Banfield Pet Hospital.
“We’re thrilled to partner with NAVC to help remove financial barriers and provide opportunities for even more students to gain valuable insights and experiences virtually through VMX’s new online platform.”
According to Gene O’Neil, NAVC’s chief executive officer, the organization’s aim is to support the next generation of professionals as veterinary services are becoming increasingly in high demand.
NAVC hopes to double last year’s attendance of 1,000 veterinary students with the help of the Student American Veterinary Medical Association (SAVMA) and Banfield Pet Hospital.
