It is a great pleasure to announce that the 5th International Veterinary Simulation in Teaching (InVeST) Conference will be held in Pretoria, South Africa, from 10 – 12 April 2017. The aim of the conference is to share innovations and best practice in the exciting and rapidly developing field of veterinary simulation in teaching. The conference will continue in the tradition of successful conferences, previously held at Colorado State University, USA; Calgary University, Canada; Ross University, West Indies and Hanover University, Germany.
The Conference will be hosted at the Intundla Conference Venue, in the heart of Dinokeng. Meaning “a place of rivers”, Dinokeng is a region in Northern Gauteng, rich in natural, cultural and historical heritage sites. It includes the Dinokeng Game Reserve, where elephant, buffalo and lion still roam freely. This unique venue will ensure that the conference is enjoyed in the spirit of “umoya”, a Zulu word meaning team spirit. One day will be spent at the Faculty of Veterinary Science, University of Pretoria, Onderstepoort.
The InVeST 2017 conference will provide an excellent opportunity to engage with an extensive network of experts, to form new partnerships and share knowledge in a relaxing environment, while experiencing the rolling African bushveld.
On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, I warmly invite you to join us in the beautiful region of Dinokeng, South Africa, for InVeST 2017.
Dr Annett Annandale
Chairperson Local Organizing Committee
