VSPN Rounds Questions
We frequently receive questions about VSPN Rounds. Rounds are one hour presentations in real-time that are held in the VSPN Rounds Unity classroom or the VIN-VSPN Rounds Unity classroom. Our speakers come from all walks of veterinary medicine and many speak at major conferences. Some presentations are delivered via text, some use an audio component. In many ways, rounds sessions are much like our CE courses. We do not offer CE credit for attending rounds, but if you want to learn more on a specific topic attend one of our upcoming sessions!
