Science Week, the annual conference of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists (ANZCVS)

5 - 7 July 2018, Gold Coast, Qld

The Epidemiology Chapter is now calling for abstracts! As per previous years, we are planning to hold a conference session on all 3 days of Science Week. You can submit a paper on anything epi, but we do already have a couple of themes we're thinking about putting together:
  • Antimicrobial resistance (likely to be a joint session with Pharmacology and/or Veterinary Public Health chapters)
  • Education/Teaching &/or Application of New Techniques in Veterinary Epidemiology (following on from the discussion last year)

We need to receive your title(s) by 25 January 2018 at the latest! Abstracts are required by the end of March, but feel free to send them in earlier. If you would like any further information or to discuss, please contact me! [Click on the link above for more information]

Workshops with a wildlife focus


WHA and AusVet Animal Health Services have previously run a 3-day wildlife focused Quantum GIS mapping workshop and 2-day Wildlife Epidemiology workshop.  These workshops were both a great success, not only providing participants with new skills but also an opportunity to exchange ideas with others working with wildlife in a variety of ways.

WHA will work with AusVet to run further workshops for wildlife professionals, so if you are interested in participating please let us know.
