Virtual Continuing Education

At CCVM we are aiming to provide veterinarians and technicians with interactive and useful CE each Fall. We will continue to release information on sessions. For all CE inquires, contact Sara Smith at sara.k.smith@oregonstate.edu or 541-737-6779. 

How virtual CE will work: 

Thank you for participating in continuing education with us! Due to COVID-19, we will be hosting our CE via Zoom until it is safe for us to meet in person again. Please register at the Qualtrics link that is associated to each individual session. The zoom link will be emailed out the day before the session. After you complete the seminar, a short quiz will be sent to you to complete to receive your credit. Please note that our CE is only for Oregon credits.
