SAMSoc Nurses - Who are we?

SAMsoc was founded in 2003 for Veterinary Surgeons who shared a passion and enthusiasm for internal medicine. They have vets from many different backgrounds ranging from vet students and first opinion vets to American and European specialists in internal medicine.  Late 2021 saw an expansion to this society where registered veterinary nurses with a passion for small animal internal medicine were invited to attend SAMSoc's first RVN meeting on 3rd November 2021. Following the success of this we decided now was the time to expand and form SAMsoc Nurses; where likeminded RVNs can share the same passion among a society of others that carry the same enthusiasm. Veterinary surgeons are invited to attend the SAMSoc Autumn 2021 meeting on Wednesday, 3rd November. To register, please click on the button below.

OUR AIM: To provide high quality internal medicine CPD aimed at RVNs and the care that they provide to a range of cases, as well as a forum for case discussions, ideas and support. We also invite nurses to present interesting case reports at our CPD events, and support and encourage research projects to be carried out and presented.
