Greencross Vets National Clinical Symposium 2020

The annual Greencross Vets National Clinical Symposium is a national event, with upwards of 1000 delegates attending from Australia and New Zealand. With over 80 sessions across 3 days, attendees will have access to content that covers surgery, internal medicine, oncology, dentistry, feline medicine and ECC for vets as well as general nursing, dentistry and surgery for nurses plus a dedicated business stream.
