One of the cornerstones of the CVMA is an uncompromising commitment to excellence in continuing education for its members. Seven day-long seminars provide 42 hours of continuing education credit each year. Each course is applied for six (6) hours of continuing education credit through AAVSBRACE.

All seminars will be held at: 

Hamburger University on the McDonald’s Campus
2715 Jorie Blvd, Oak Brook, IL
(630) 623-7845

Meetings begin promptly at 8:00am (sign-in begins at 7:30am), lunch is served from 12:00-1:00pm, there is a morning and afternoon break, and meeting usually ends by 3:30pm. (Attendees must arrive and sign-in prior to the morning break session to be eligible for CE credit hours.)

Each attendee will receive a copy of the meeting notes, a certificate of attendance showing 6 hours of continuing education credits, and a brief survey to help us to continue to provide the highest quality of continuing education available. At each event, you will also have the opportunity to meet with exhibitors and view their products and services; and have social time with your colleagues.

Hamburger University dress code is business casual. (No jeans, t-shirts or sweats.) All attendees must wear a name badge at all times. You may wear either your hospital name badge or the one provided to you by the CVMA.
