The VTCS Workshop

Come visit the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

We are excited to host the 2017 Veterinary Technician Conference in the epicenter of artisanal coffee, beer, and food- Portland, Oregon!  We are home to some of the best microbreweries, food carts, and thrift store shopping in the West. I work at Veterinary Cancer and Surgery Specialists in Milwaukie, Oregon as an oncology technician with Dr. Kim Freeman. I have worked in private practice oncology for the past 3 ½ years and enjoy the challenge and privilege of working closely with our clients for a better quality of life for their beloved pets.

The 2017 Veterinary Technician Conference will be organized with feedback from last year’s conference in mind, and we are also open to suggestions! We will be working for the next few months to find topics and speakers that will be educational and engaging for technicians and the schedule will be updated as we fill in the spots. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please feel free to email me at

Many of the workshop presentations will be recorded for those that are unable to attend, and will be available online for a nominal fee closer to the end of the year. For those who were unable to attend the 2016 workshop, you can find eight of the sessions on the VCS website for a nominal fee, so please check them out!

Looking forward to seeing you in the Rose City!
