etyka-620x500oIt is our great pleasure to invite you to the Ethical Dilemmas in Veterinary Education Conference, held by IVSA Warsaw in the Warsaw University of Life Sciences.

The EDinVE Conference will consist of 3 exciting days – two of which will be lectures, workshops and discussions, which will touch upon ethical aspects of veterinary medicine, dilemmas that we meet on our way to become a professional and after obtaining our diploma. We will talk about ways to improve our patient’s welfare and how to deal with ethically difficult situations. Experienced speakers from all over the world will get us through important, tough and controversial issues that we, as students, may not even be aware of.
