Connect with Our Top Referral Veterinary Clinics

Are you looking for a way to build or expand your connections with the Chicago-area Veterinary Community?

Veterinary Specialty Center hosts continuing education events throughout the year that draw veterinary practitioners from the local community. Each conference focuses on a different aspect of veterinary medicine and provides access to a slightly different audience. We heavily cross-promote our sponsors and provide plenty of access to attendees during registration, lunch, and breaks.

We are continually looking for corporate sponsors to support these programs –

  • 17th VSC Veterinary Education Conference

    Postponed until Sunday, February 27, 2022
    Lincolnshire Marriott Resort

    Our largest drawing event features our doctors and technicians providing updates on current veterinary medical topics. Our Veterinary Education Conference draws over 400 doctors and 400 veterinary nurses from our top referral hospitals and fills up every year. This event gives you access to the largest, local veterinary audience in one day with staggered breaks, giving you more time with attendees.

  • 3rd Annual VSC Veterinary Well-Being Day

    Date – To Be Announced
    Meridian Banquet and Conference Center in Rolling Meadows
    This CE is open to all members of veterinary teams and the animal welfare community with the focus on compassion fatigue and overall wellness in our profession. This event expects to draw around 200 people. It also features small businesses in the mental health and wellness space.

  • 8th VSC Veterinary Business Conference

    Future date to be determined
    Meridian Banquet and Conference Center in Rolling Meadows
    The focus of this educational program is on topics related to managing a veterinary practice and draws between 150-200 practice owners, managers, and supervisors (key decision-makers). It also draws professionals who are aspiring to move into those roles in the future. For this event, we reach out to sponsors for speakers on a variety of business topics.

  • Specialty-Focused CE

    Time, date, and location – To be determined
    This half-day or daylong event will focus on a particular discipline of our specialty practice that highlights our collaborative approach. Past education days have addressed kidney disease and injury, trauma, and nutrition. We also have hosted events that may introduce new specialists or services that we provide at VSC.

  • Special Continuing Education Programs for Veterinary Nurses

    Time, date, and location – To be determined
    We will be offering several half-day to full-day programs aimed specifically at veterinary nurses. We have hosted an emergency- and trauma-focused CE in the past and plan on a future CE that concentrates on CPR with other programs in development.

We also host continuing education lectures at VSC during the year that feature our doctors and veterinary nurses as well as speakers from the national veterinary community brought in by our sponsors. We will be launching a webinar series later in the year.
