AABP Recent Graduate Conference

February 20-22, 2020, Columbus, OH

As the leading organization representing and supporting cattle veterinarians, the American Association of Bovine Practitioners (AABP) recognizes that more recent graduates are often unable to attend the AABP Annual Conference and take advantage of AABP’s bovine-oriented continuing education and networking opportunities. Recent graduates have indicated the desire for more CE on both clinical skills and in practice/employee management, whether they are associates, partners or practice owners.

In response to this need, AABP is bringing recent graduates (those who have graduated veterinary school between 2012-2019) the opportunity to attend a veterinary conference, limited to 300 participants, that will offer cutting edge clinical skills and practice management information. This two-day session will be packed with 15.5 hours of continuing education. The dairy, cow-calf, and feedlot chairs of the program committee are also recent graduates and are drawing from the needs of their veterinary peers and colleagues as they put this program together. In addition to providing quality bovine medicine CE, the goal of the conference is to also encourage recent grads to become and stay active in organized veterinary medicine and take advantage of the resources offered by AABP. The AABP Recent Veterinary Graduate Conference is limited to AABP members only. Not a member or need to renew your membership? Visit

Veterinary technicians must be sponsored by an AABP member and must have graduated from an AVMA accredited Registered Veterinary Technician program from 2012-2019.
