10th VETERINARY FORUM ON COMPANION ANIMAL MEDICINE

10ο FORUM ΚΤΗΝΙΑΤΡΙΚΗΣ ΖΩΩΝ ΣΥΝΤΡΟΦΙΑΣ 

10 years HCAVS - 10 years FORUM

Athens, Wyndham Grand Athens, 2-3 March 2019

 

10forum catDear colleagues,

Ten years have passed… Realizing this fact stirs up contradictory emotions; one always has to hold success tight in order to be able to manage criticism in the event of an error!

So, it has been ten years full of new ideas and autonomous thinking, in terms of establishing and maintaining an educational movement that has promised and keeps on promising a lot. It is a perpetual motion the source of knowledge.

During the last decades, a lot of changes have been brought about in the management of the Veterinary Medicine in Greece, from the University faculties until the smallest veterinary unit. The establishment of the Hellenic Companion Animal Veterinary Society (H.C.A.V.S.) and its development over the last decade has made a significant contribution to this perspective. The first FORUM was held in 2009, and, since then, every anniversary FORUM still remains the main veterinary scientific event regarding Companion Animal Medicine. Innovatively, the HCAVS has launched the twoday courses in the regional cities of the country, which have also become a successful institution. Furthermore, the HCAVS has established the annual autumn event, a fullday scientific seminar, which has managed to gain the love of our colleagues due to its exceptional scientific interest.

Ten years and nine successful FORUMS later, the HCAVS counts more than 1,100 active members and, being fully equipped with positive experiences, targets towards the future, by organizing the 10th FORUM and giving it to all of its members. Besides being a scientific event of major value, this FORUM will be a landmark that will lay new foundations for the educational process.

In our thinking, the presence of Professor Timoleon Rallis remains alive, as he was the President of the HCAVS and one of the key figures of its establishment. Our friend Timos will be with us during this scientific gathering; a point of reference and a source of inspiration for the future. His scientific mark will always be present but the void he left will be impossible to fill....

We have cooperated very well during the last ten years. From the very beginning we have been aiming to yield, in the best possible way, the scientific supplies gathered by the international veterinary family. Together we ensured to elevate the scientific qualification and professional selfconfidence. Last but not least, we focused on the need of cooperation and we built new relationships with the academic institutions and teachers of the country, thus establishing new and positive co-operations.

Dear Colleagues and Friends, We invite all of you in the 10th anniversary and cross-thematic FORUM, in order to define the choices for the next year, to recommence together and to become even more.

Greek and foreign distinguished speakers will expound, in four parallel meeting rooms, the most interesting science topics in companion animal medicine.

The commercial companies, our unfailing supporters, will honor us with their presence in displaying the latest developments in the market. The commercial exhibit will run parallel to the congress both days.

Best wishes for a successful Forum!
