The BSAVA is calling for speakers at the BSAVA Congress in April 2015. This is a fantastic opportunity for veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses and practice managers to present their work to the profession in a supportive and encouraging environment.

In the Clinical Abstract stream, an important part of congress, speakers will have 15 minutes to present their work. The presentations play a major role in the progress of veterinary science and provide delegates with the opportunity to be inspired by the latest studies and new research.

BSAVA invite members of the profession to submit articles either as presentations or posters from September 15 - October 20. Further information is available at www.bsava.com/congress
