Organized by species, each real-time session will highlight the "Top 20" diseases and conditions encountered by practitioners in the U.S. and Canada. All real-time sessions will include multiple-choice questions similar to those that candidates will encounter on the NAVLE®.

** NOTE: The instructors provide a lot of excellent material and do their best to answer participant questions in the time allotted. Sometimes a session can run overtime by 15 to 30 minutes because of the number of participant questions posted. Participants are not required to stay late when the session runs overtime but it is in their best interests to do so. A transcript of the Real Time Session, including any session overtime, will be available in the course library the following day. Participants can use the transcript to review any portion of the class that they may have missed.
Enrollment will be limited to 450 registrants. This class may fill quickly; students and veterinarians interested in the structured active learning provided through Real Time Sessions and message boards should register now to ensure a "seat" in class. Please enroll only if planning on attending all real-time sessions and fully participating in the course.
* To ensure participants are ready and prepared for classes, enrollment will close when the maximum number of participants is reached or at 5pm ET the day of the first Real Time Session unless otherwise noted. If the first Real Time Session is on a weekend, course enrollment will close on the Friday before the first Real Time Session.
