WVC’s Oquendo Center

An innovative hands-on training facility designed and built for veterinarians by veterinarians. The nearly 70,000 square foot Oquendo Center is the ultimate venue for WVC hands-on labs, interactive workshops and development of practice-enhancing skills.

It is estimated more than 23,000 veterinary professionals and nearly 24,000 human medical doctors and surgeons from across the country and the world have participated in educational events since opening. WVC’s hands-on continuing education program for veterinarians grew to more than 30 courses in 2017 and additional offsite courses and digital resources have further expanded the veterinary offerings.
