Inaugural WAVMA Virtual Conference, 3 – 5 May 2016 – “Veterinary Approaches to Sustainability”

The first WAVMA Virtual Conference will provide 20-30 hours of CPD on topics of interest to vets already practising in the field and vets or students who are starting out, wishing to increase their knowledge. If you are a qualified veterinarian, veterinary scientist, student or Vet Tech/Nurse and provide at least one presentation, then you will obtain free registration to the conference*.

The conference will be streamed by Vetstream (register at, a UK company specialising in veterinary education. Most presentations will be pre-recorded, and are due to last 30 minutes, with an opportunity to ask questions either through a specific live “panel” Q&A sessions or in discussion forums. The proposed topics include: antimicrobial resistance, biosecurity, nutrition, health and welfare, veterinary education, and the “One Health” concept.

There will be also a series of 45-50 minute keynote presentations going out live, followed by a live 10-15 minute Q&A session. During the event, renowned specialists in the field of aquatic animal health and production, such as Greg Lewbart, Mohamed Faisal, Simon Davis, Keith Davenport and many more, will provide first-class lectures on topics ranging from invertebrates to social & welfare impacts of live capture of marine ornamentals.
The presentations will remain online on the conference website for approximately three months, after which they will be placed on the WAVMA webinar platform and the Vetstream website. Any money raised will be used to support WAVMA’s educational programs, such as the Student Scholarship Program.
