Twenty students and two faculty members from the Veterinary Science Technology program attended the New York State Association of Veterinary Technicians (NYSAVT) 2019 Spring Seminar in Syracuse, NY, April 12-14. The NYSAVT Spring Seminar is a professional conference for veterinary technicians to obtain continuing education (CE) hours required to maintain their licensure. Students who attend the conference are able to start building their CE hours as well as network with other students, vet techs, and potential employers.
The students reported that attending the seminar was very valuable they were able to draw connections between content learned in their classes and the workshops. Taylor Powers '19 especially enjoyed learning about how to manage stress and compassion fatigue and improving communication skills. "This will help me not only for the rest of my Delhi career but my future career as a busy Vet tech," said Taylor.
SUNY Delhi's Veterinary Science Technology program was the first of its kind in the nation and is fully accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). Offering both an associate's and bachelor's degree, SUNY Delhi graduates are prepared to become licensed veterinary technicians and care for the health and wellness of animals of all sizes.
