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 NAVLEŽ. The questions will lead to a brief discussion and summary of each condition in a distilled format.

About the Presenters:
Dr. Steven McLaughlin is president and founder of the Zuku Review, an online veterinary test preparation service in operation since 2006. He specializes in helping students and new graduates prepare for the NAVLEŽ, BCSE and PAVE QE. He consults with veterinary schools in the U.S. and abroad on boards review planning and is a popular speaker on effective adult learning. Dr. McLaughlin is boarded in veterinary preventive medicine and brings a decade of international public health experience to VIN. With Dr. Waiva Worthley, he has developed and given the VIN NAVLEŽ Review and Preparation course twice yearly since February 2008.

Dr. Waiva Worthley has the distinction of passing the boards twice! She graduated from Virginia Tech in 1988 and passed the National Board Examination. Eighteen years later, she took North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLEŽ) in order to be licensed in Missouri and passed again. VIN's resources were invaluable to her in preparing for the NAVLEŽ. In collaboration with Dr. Steve McLaughlin and VIN, Dr. Worthley developed the VIN NAVLEŽ Review and Preparation class. She has co-taught the NAVLEŽ review twice yearly since 2008, to over 2000 veterinary students and graduates.

** 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 to attend all Real Time Sessions and fully participate in the course.
