In 2020 and 2021 SeaVet Clinical Training had adapted to a Zoom format to deal with the Covid 19 pandemic and to still try to offer a unique aquatic education for those students also dealing with a loss of options. We expanded the topics and speakers to make up for the loss of the in person experience and trips we used to take. This year we wanted to get back to our in person classes and have at least 2 off site trips but this would limit us to 30 people again. We thought that may leave some with no options again so we are trying a different approach.
Here is the plan for 2022: We will have the usual 30 people that will be physically present here and take advantage of the two in person visits off site but still offer 15 seats after those are taken for others to attend virtually who do not have any other choices out there. Only those 15 off site participants will be given links to the courses for online attendance with virtual registrants participating via Zoom and in-person registrants attending lectures at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine (UF CVM) in Gainesville, Florida. It is important to note that all instructional sessions for both virtual and in-person participation will be conducted live, typically from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM US Eastern Daylight Time; recordings will not be available.
