With the global impact of COVID-19 and the postponement the 2020 ACVIM North American Neuroscience Course (Brain Camp) until summer 2021, we understand that this is an extremely challenging time for residents and has been very disruptive to resident training. As a result, we will be delivering a portion of the ACVIM North American Neuroscience Course (Brain Camp) as an online program starting in August.
The ACVIM Brain Camp Online program will consist of 18 hours of content, divided into three courses of 6 hours each. The material will be delivered as 1-hour RACE-approved modules containing pre-recorded lectures, proceedings and assessments. Attendees can access modules from any device and at their own pace. Each course will conclude with a 1-hour live Q&A with the presenters. The Q&A session will also be recorded to watch later for attendees who are unable to join the live portion. Attendees will continue to have access to the modules through June 30, 2021.
