We are thrilled to be returning to Zion in 2019 for 14 all-new hours of approved Continuing Education amongst the striking landscapes of one of America's most beautiful National Parks. Zion in Autumn is a wonder to behold. Just when you thought the red-rock canyon walls and blue skies could not be any more beautiful - the deciduous trees of the valley floor come alive with their own multi-hued splendor.

The Education

14 hours of approved CE will be available (subjects below). Our dermatology speaker will be Dr. Shelia Torres DVM , PhD Diplomate ACVD.  Dr. Torres is the Head of the Dermatology service at the University of Minnesota Veterinary Teaching Hospital and is a dynamic speaker who has lectured all over the world and we are delighted to have her join us. Dr. Gia Klauss DVM , DACVO will provide our Ophthalmology lectures. Dr. Klauss is a former Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota VTH and now works in clinical practice in Vancouver, WA.  As practicing clinicians, both of our speakers provide practical information that you can bring home and put into practice right away.

The Location

Our conference hotel is less than a mile from the main park entrance. If you want to keep it simple, there is even a National Parks shuttle that picks visitors up in front of our hotel to shuttle you to and from all of the major trailheads in the park as well as the visitors center. It couldn't be easier to unwind and learn.

The Marriott Springhill Suites, has set aside a block of rooms for our attendees at a discounted rate for that time of year of $229. You are welcome to stay anywhere you like of course but the hotel is extremely nice, conveniently located, includes a free hot breakfast buffet each day, free parking and wifi and the most scenic hot tub in Utah. All rooms are suites and there are larger rooms available for families or larger groups. When you register for the conference we will email you a link which will allow you to reserve a room in our block.

Your Vacation

Our lectures will be first thing in the morning or in the evenings.  This is designed to give you ample opportunities each day to get out and enjoy the beauty of Zion National Park. We believe that the relaxed mind is a more focused mind, and that the more focused mind is more apt to learn and retain. The conference will begin at 5pm on Thursday October 17th and the final hour of CE will be done before noon on Sunday the 20th.

Additionally, we will provide a welcome BBQ immediately after evening courses on Thursday night at the hotel. The view from the BBQ will be the same one you see in the picture above with the fire pit - not bad. On Saturday evening we will host a sunset happy hour with beverages and appetizers at a pub across the street from our hotel. Zion in October may just be the best time you will ever have at work.

Etc.

The most convenient airport is Las Vegas (LAS). It is a beautiful 2.5 hour drive and flights to LAS and rental cars from there tend to be priced favorably. There is even a shuttle service that can bring you to our hotel from the Las Vegas airport if you want to go car-free.  There is also an airport in St. George, Utah (SGU) that is 50 minutes away.  The Salt Lake City airport (SLC) is about a 4 hour drive.

Common pitfalls in veterinary dermatology
