AABP Recent Graduate Conference

February 12-13, 2021, St. Louis, Mo.

As the leading organization representing and supporting cattle veterinarians, the American Association of Bovine Practitioners recognizes that more recent graduates are often unable to attend the AABP Annual Conference and take advantage of AABP’s bovine-oriented continuing education and networking opportunities. Recent graduates have indicated the desire for more CE on both clinical skills and in introductory consulting skills in production medicine.

In response to this need, AABP brings recent graduates who have graduated veterinary school between 2013-2020 the opportunity to attend in-person a veterinary conference, limited to 200 participants, that will offer cutting-edge clinical skills and practice management information. For the first time, the AABP Recent Graduate Conference is open to all AABP members and students to attend virtually.


Due to COVID-19, AABP and the Hyatt will implement safety precautions to minimize the risk to in-person attendees. Room capacities will be established with physical distancing between chairs. If a session room is at capacity, attendees will be asked to attend another session or watch the session virtually. Masks/face coverings will be required in all meeting and public spaces. Attendees are required to follow hotel safety regulations and we ask for your cooperation. If you are unable to wear a face covering or are in a high-risk category for COVID-19 complications, AABP recommends you not attend the conference in-person and register virtually.

This two-day conference will be packed with 15.5 hours of continuing education. The program committee are also recent graduates and are drawing from the needs of their veterinary peers and colleagues for this program. In addition to providing quality bovine medicine CE, the goal of the conference is to also encourage recent grads to become and stay active in organized veterinary medicine and take advantage of the resources offered by AABP. Due to demand for animal health and other products, in 2021 the conference will also offer a trade show. The AABP Recent Veterinary Graduate Conference is limited to AABP members only.
