Continuing Education

We believe in continual learning.

Our profession is based on scientific knowledge, which is constantly changing.

Our profession’s success depends on creative problem-solving, up-to-date training, and the finest skills.

At SAGE, we are dedicated to helping advance veterinary medicine and improving pet care by sharing what we know. SAGE is committed to providing continuing education opportunities not only for our own staff but also for the veterinarian community.

The Sage Learning Network

SAGE now offers RACE-approved continuing education courses and professional development trainings for your Veterinary clinical and non-clinical staff, even in the convenience of your own practice!

The Annual Sage Small Animal Veterinary Symposium

Since 2000, veterinarians, technicians, and practice managers from throughout the Bay Area have attended our annual full-day SAGE Small Animal Veterinary Symposium. 

This all-day symposium offers 7 hours of continuing education credits with varied workshops and learning options:

  • 3 Clinical Tracks

  • 2 Nursing Tracks

  • 1 Management/Client Care Track

Practice Manager Forums

We regularly invite practice managers from across the Bay Area to network and exchange industry knowledge at each of our facilities.

Contact us for details.

Small Group “Diagnosis” Dinners

All four of our SAGE Centers host periodic “diagnosis” dinners. These are small group, informal gatherings that typically consist of short topic presentations with a discussion session to follow. These dinnertime events provide an excellent opportunity for interfacing with regional colleagues.

If you’re a San Francisco Bay Area primary veterinarian and would like to be invited to a future event, please add your name to our email list by contacting us.

Workshops, Local Presentations & Keynote Speaking Engagements

SAGE doctors are encouraged to speak at community events throughout the year, educating both the public, community service personnel, and other veterinary professionals.

Past speaking engagements include county veterinary medical associations, “Wilderness First Aid for your Dog” lectures at REI, and Emergency care lectures to law enforcement with Cover Your K9, to name a few.
