Speakers

Meet our Keynote Speaker:

Dr Søren Boysen, DACVECC

 

Dr. Søren Boysen obtained his DVM from the University of Saskatchewan (Canada), completed a small animal internship at the Atlantic Veterinary College (Canada), and a residency at Tufts University (United States), becoming a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care in 2003.

He is the former Chief of Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care at the University of Montreal, and currently a Full Professor of veterinary emergency and critical care at the University of Calgary, where he continues to be active in various ECVECC, ACVECC and VetCOT committees.

Extensively published, and a recipient of numerous teaching and research excellence awards, he has become an internationally recognized speaker, lecturing around the world. He loves all things ECC but his true passion is point of care ultrasound: With his colleagues from Tufts he published the first veterinary FAST point of care ultrasound exam for use in small animals, and with colleagues at the University of Calgary, adapted veterinary point of care ultrasound for use in non-trauma patients. With the help of many great colleagues from around the world, he continues to develop ultrasound training techniques, education programs, and workshops for non-specialist practitioners. Along with point of care ultrasound, his research interests include hemorrhage, coagulation, and perfusion.
