WCCC Holds Professional Development Courses for Local Veterinarian Staff

WCCC is continuing veterinary technology education for professionals in the field

The Western Colorado Community College Veterinary Technology program is making it a key priority to facilitate and organize professional development courses for local practitioners to inform and educate them on the latest technology in their field.

On Wednesday, March 11, the WCCC Veterinary Technology Program partnered with IDEXX Laboratories, a company which offers diagnostic and software products to practicing veterinarians around the world, to present to 20 western Colorado practitioners from seven veterinarian hospitals and clinics across the Grand Valley. 

The presentation was on renal disease, a condition that causes the kidneys to stop functioning properly and was free of charge to veterinarians and veterinary technicians (vet tech), which provided continued education credit hours required to maintain veterinary and vet tech licenses and certification. 

“These presentations are also a great opportunity for professionals that just want to come learn the latest in diagnostic techniques,” said WCCC Veterinary Technology Program Director Anneke Moresco, PhD, DVM.

Representatives from Palisade Pet care, Grand View Animal Hospital, Amigo Animal Clinic, Kokopelli Animal Hospital, Arrowhead Veterinary Hospital and Houseweart Vet Clinic were in attendance. 

The evening was focused on learning and comparing notes with others in the veterinary field, many of who don’t often have the opportunity to collaborate with one another.
