WHY WE HAVE TWO PROGRAMS – SCIENTIFIC AND EDUCATIONAL

Working on the program, the conference organizers and speakers always face a challenge. They have to predict what the audience will be like and how complex the lectures should be. As a result, speakers try to achieve the impossible – to cover fundamentals taking into account the interest of junior doctors, to fill the lectures with information about the most recent advances in veterinary medicine, and to raise complex and disputable issues to which science has no answers yet in order to keep experienced doctors interested. Such an attempt to fill two needs with one deed inevitably results in situations when a part of the participants is unhappy about having got too little new knowledge, while the other part was not able to understand everything. We decided to solve this problem the way it is done at major international conferences.

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM

This program is intended for veterinary doctors already specializing in specific areas. The level of complexity of the reports and the agenda items selected for discussion in round table sessions are relevant for doctors who already know the basics of specific subjects. The reports are not overviews or general educational lectures. They contain the most state-of-the-art information based on the EBM principles and they are produced based on meta-analysis of all recent publications in international specialized peer-reviewed journals. All reports go through the preliminary review by scientific groups comprising opinion leaders in specific areas of expertise. Based on discussions, recommendations on diagnosis and treatment are formulated by appropriate expert panels.

EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM

This program is intended for general practitioners, junior doctors, interns willing to expand their knowledge of various areas of veterinary medicine. Requirements to reports presented in educational sessions are different. They main requirement is a systemic, comprehensive and comprehensible coverage of information on the subject. The invited speakers are also experts in their respective areas, but their reports focus on generally accepted fundamental information presented in the form understandable for the target audience rather than statistical data and disputable issues. Each conference participant has to estimate his or her level of knowledge in each area and to decide which session he or she would like to attend – scientific or educational. As participants have free access to any session, they can choose sessions bringing them maximum benefits and satisfaction during the conference. Our personal experience of participation in international conferences shows that it is often difficult to choose the level of the session and the topic as such. It is very tempting to cover everything. Having this in mind, we will provide a possibility for all registered conference participants to get familiarized with the presentations and audio records of lectures they could not attend. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for each doctor to get as much useful information as possible.
