SAMSoc 2018 Winter Meeting

Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd November 2018

Burleigh Court Conference Centre, Loughborough

Join us for an excellent two-day programme at our joint meeting with the Veterinary Cardiovascular Society (VCS). Friday 2nd will be run as separate streams with a joint programme on the 3rd.

History of the Small Animal Society

The Small Animal Medicine Society (SAMSoc) was founded in 2003 for veterinary surgeons from the UK and abroad who share a passion and enthusiasm for small animal medicine. Our members include first-opinion vets, veterinary students and RCVS, American and European Specialists in Small Animal Internal Medicine.

SAMSoc is a growing society with approximately 220 active members and has been awarded BSAVA Affiliate Group status.

The SAMSoc Committee 

Committee members are volunteers (SAMSoc members) who generously give up some of their time to help make SAMSoc successful. We welcome new volunteers to be recruited to the committee each year. Each post is generally held for three years. New committee members are voted in at the AGM which takes place at the end of the pre-BSAVA meeting in April. The committee was restructured following the AGM in 2014 to increase efficiency. This restructuring involved the employment of a secretary.
