About Synapse

Our one-day, in-person and virtual conference will cover everything you need to know about neurology, while providing attendees with five continuing education (CE) credits! We expect more than 200 veterinarians (many who are practice owners) and veterinary technicians to attend this event designed to bring together the veterinary community for a day of learning and networking.

Attendees will be provided with:

  • 5 CE credits
  • Lecture presentations from the brightest minds in veterinary neurology
  • Guest speaker from another veterinary specialty background
  • Networking opportunities
  • Breakfast, lunch, and cocktail reception
  • Opportunity to enter our raffle for a great prize
  • A sWAG bag

A portion of proceeds will be donated to our charitable fund with the Veterinary Care Foundation (VCF), a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity that helps veterinary practices subsidize the cost of treatment for families and rescue groups in need.
