American College of Veterinary Dermatology Educational Outreach Program

The American College of Veterinary Dermatology, a Founding Member Organization of WAVD, recently conducted its third annual ACVD Dermatology Outreach Program in Post Falls, Idaho in the United States. ACVD Diplomates, Drs. Paul Bloom and Linda Messinger, provided 3 days of continuing education in veterinary dermatology to general practitioners.


The objective of the program is to provide annual seminars to veterinarians in underserved areas of the United States to improve their knowledge and understanding of basic dermatology principles. Sponsorship for this event was provided by Bayer HealthCare Animal Health and Idexx Laboratories. Previous programs were presented in Missoula, Montana in 2012 and Burlington, Vermont in 2013. WAVD congratulates the ACVD on its dedication to the Worldwide Advancement of Veterinary Dermatology through this and other educational initiatives.
