The RCVS ViVet Innovation Symposium is back for 2019. This year we will focus on ‘Precision Veterinary Medicine’ taking a bold look at how rapidly developing technology will transform the veterinary professions and the care they provide as we rapidly move to a new age of data-driven practice.

In the longer term, such technology will fundamentally change the role of veterinary professionals and how veterinary services are delivered. We will debate how the veterinary professions can manage this transition and remain relevant in this new era; by focusing on the unique value they offer society, embracing change and redefining their role, and developing new skills.

We are delighted to host Nancy Rademaker as our Keynote Speaker who will be talking on how exponentially evolving technology is transforming the world and giving insights into how the veterinary professions prepare for and thrive in The Day After Tomorrow.

Other confirmed speakers include:
Kathy Turner - Idexx – Changing customer attitudes and preventative veterinary medicine
Matthew Smith - Microsoft – Artificial Intelligence and Agriculture
Iain Maclaren - Oxford Nanopore Technology - Low-cost and accessible genomic sequencing
Lori Teller, Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. RCVS Knowledge: Initial findings of the telemedicine study
Future of the Professions debate: Chair: George Gunn Panel: Andrew Frances, Gudrun Ravetz, Iain Richards, Lynne Hill

We will also be hosting the ViVet Student Veterinary Innovation Competition final, which sees three finalist teams going head to head presenting in front of a panel of industry professionals. The winning and runner-up groups will then be selected and will be presented alongside the ‘mentor’s choice’ award.

This symposium will bring together veterinary professionals and stakeholders from diverse backgrounds to discuss the role of Veterinary Professional and the advancements in both companion and production animal care in the United Kingdom.

Those who may find the event of particular interest include: practising vets and vet nurses, researchers, animal health professionals, animal health professional bodies, innovators and entrepreneurs.

Be part of the conversation, and engage with those shaping the future! #Innovation
