Continuing Education Credits

Course meets the requirements for 1 RACE hours of continuing education credit for veterinary technicians and veterinarians in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB's RACE approval. However, participants should be aware that some boards have limitations on the number of hours accepted in certain categories and/or restrictions on certain methods of delivery.

RACE Subject Category: Medical; Delivery Method: Non-interactive Distance; Program Number 57-38210.

VetMedTeam is also approved as a New York State sponsor of continuing education for veterinarians and veterinary technicians.

VetMedTeam is also approved as a Florida state sponsor of continuing education for veterinarians. The Florida Medical Board does not recognize technicians and therefore only addresses veterinarian CE requirements.

Course Focus and Learning Objectives

The Regional and Seasonal: Mapping Pet Illnesses and Accidents continuing education course was made possible through an educational partnership with Trupanion.

Most veterinary practitioners could draw a map of heartworm prevalence in the USA with their eyes closed. Yet what if you were asked to do the same for sago palm toxicity or pancreatitis? This course explores the prevalence of accidents and illnesses across the United States, highlighting regions, and seasons, especially prone to certain conditions and discussing how often these conditions present the rest of the country.

This course is based on the archive of the webinar of the same name and is appropriate for veterinarians, credentialed technicians, and practice team members, along with vet and tech school students.

By the end of the course, participants should be able to give examples of medical conditions that occur primarily in certain sections, and in certain seasons, across the USA. In addition, they will be familiar with the degree to which conditions can occur outside regions that normally are not affected.
