Did you know that continuing education is a vital part of veterinary medicine? Each state’s requirements for their veterinarians are unique, but in Ohio, veterinarians must complete 30 hours of continuing education every two years in order to maintain a current license.
In past years, our doctors have taken courses in ophthalmology, breeding management, surgery, dentistry, ultrasound, pharmacology, nutrition, cardiology, oncology, and endocrine diseases, as well as practice management and business compliance, among others.
This year, both Dr. Ryan and Dr. Doug will be attending the Midwest Veterinary Conference in Columbus (yes, Columbus in February… I can sense your jealously from here!). Dr. Ryan is planning on taking in classes on dentistry, ophthalmology, nutrition, practice management and dermatology. Dr. Doug is looking forward to courses in orthopedics and hematology.
In addition to keeping a current license, the doctors at the Cuyahoga Falls Veterinary Clinic pursue continuing education so that they can stay current on the latest developments in veterinary medicine. This directly impacts our patients and our clients at the point of care. Practicing good medicine is our primary goal.
Next time you see either of the doctors, ask them how classes went at their last meeting!
