Welcome to the 9th World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology

Online Format and Content

The aim of the WCVD is to provide something appropriate for everyone – from the molecular scientist working in the field to the newly qualified practitioner developing an interest in dermatology. There are:

  • Multiple themes including state-of-the-art lectures with supporting in depth reviews, and supporting original studies allied to the same themes, and posters presenting new clinical and scientific data.

  • Two extensive programmes of continuing education suitable for general practitioners (Dermatology in General Practice) as well as for those with a special interest in dermatology (Advanced Dermatology) are provided.

  • Special themes including feline, equine, and wild and exotic animal dermatology, a cytology lab and a range of dermatopathology presentations for both practitioners and those more expert in the field.

  • Nine, three-hour symposia are offered by the principal sponsors to all delegates, covering a wide range of relevant material.

  • State-of-the-art interactive commercial exhibition within the three-dimensional virtual congress centre.

  • Presentations will be made available as pre-recorded videos with written notes. Abstracts of the main theme presentations, posters and free communications will be available for free access in an online supplement of Veterinary Dermatology in October 2020, and the main themes will be published in full in a special issue of Veterinary Dermatology as Advances in Veterinary Dermatology 9 in 2021.

Three levels of registration are available allowing access to 1) the full programme, 2) the full range of continuing education sessions, or 3) essential continuing education for the general practitioner. Lectures in the essential CE programme will also be available in Japanese, Chinese, Spanish and Portuguese. Access for six months allows delegates to view all lectures as often as they wish within their chosen registration package.
