Covid can’t paws virtual World Feline Congress

Registration is now open for the ISFM 2021 World Feline Congress, taking place as a virtual event from 25-27 June.

Taking as its theme ‘The ever-complex cat: a multidisciplinary approach to feline medicine’, the three-day event aims to reflect the complexity of feline veterinary cases and the need for vets to be proficient in many different skills to successfully diagnose and treat feline patients.

Keynote speaker Professor Kenneth Simpson, Chief of the Section of Small Animal Internal Medicine at Cornell University, will be sharing his world-leading research on infectious causes of pancreatic, liver and gastrointestinal disease and joining him will be over 20 other renowned feline experts.

The programme of virtual talks and lectures, includes more than 30 hours of high-quality CPD and the topics covered have been carefully chosen to deliver the maximum practical benefit to delegates and equip them with skills they’ll use time and time again in practice.

The key themes for each day are:

  • The pancreas: endocrine/exocrine and the impact of obesity
  • Gastrointestinal disease, therapeutics and clinical problem solving
  • Liver disease, future horizons of gastrointestinal research and renal disease

Nathalie Dowgray, Head of ISFM, said: “We are very excited about the line-up of speakers for this year’s congress, it is a fantastic opportunity for vets to understand the complexity of feline medicine and come away better able to manage difficult cases.”

Last year’s International Feline Congress, the world’s first virtual feline conference, was attended by more than 12,500 veterinary professionals from 157 countries, and the hope is to build on that success this year.

New additions include live panel sessions in which delegates will be able to join the speakers in expert discussion on key feline topics, as well as opportunities to network and chat directly with leading names in the veterinary industry.

Delegates will also have access to all of the content for six months of on-demand learning after congress ends.

Registration is open now and available at a special early bird rate until March 31. More information about eligibility and how to apply can be found on the website.
