OV Conference Online

September 2021

The OV Conference is the only event dedicated solely to the CPD needs of Official Veterinarians. Building on the success of its debut in 2020, the OV Conference Online returned once more in 2021, offering 18 hours of CPD via lectures and Q&A sessions from leading speakers across three days in September.

If you missed the live event, you can still purchase the recordings of the presentations (access to these is available for six months after the event) and gain stress-free CPD without even needing to leave your home or practice.

Why go online?

The OV Conference is an important event in the calendar for OVs, so we recognised that it was vital for us to adapt in order to help you to continue learning and gaining CPD safely.

The 2021 OV Conference Online was once again managed within a safe and secure online Conference Space, and presentations were streamed using Zoom. There were six talks per day, so 18 recordings are now available to catch up on – you can view the programme by clicking here.

As always, topics reflected the biggest issues affecting OVs at the time; this year a particular focus was put on the subjects of both notifiable diseases and exports and animal health certification.
