What's the Scoop in Kansas City: an Itinerary for CVC Kansas City

We’ll see you in where the great rivers meet.

From August 25 to 28, vets from around the world will be descending on the old port city at the confluence of the Kansas and Missouri rivers.

CVC Kansas city boasts 500 hours of continuing education over four days in the heart of the Midwest.

Dragon Veterinary will be there too.

We’ll be showing how our speech dictation software works as an add-on to Dragon Medical Practice Edition II.

Basically, any data you would enter into your practice management software, be it Clientrax, Avimark, Impromed or any other system using a keyboard, Dragon Veterinary allows you to enter verbally through your Nuance dictaphone.

 CVC Kansas City’s many continuing education opportunities include:

Core clinical sessions selected to support the way you practice veterinary medicine on a daily basis.

Communications, management, leadership and personal well-being tracks to inspire you.

Technician-centric clinical and practice management sessions.

Innovation Sessions that teach alternative ways to study and learn that will bring you together and allow you to discover solutions to your most confounding clinical and practice management problems.

Beyond all that, there’ll be lots of fun and opportunities to mingle with your fellow vets.

Complimentary breakfasts and snacks come with your enrollment at the conference. As well there are negotiated hotel rates to keep prices in check.
