​Message from JAVECCS President

I'm Dr. Atsushi Nakamura, serving as the President of the Japanese Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (JaVECCS). 

It's been four years since our society's inception in 2019. Since then, we've diligently pursued three key objectives: (1) facilitating the exchange of academic knowledge, (2) deepening our expertise, and (3) nurturing the next generation of professionals. Unfortunately, the global outbreak of the new coronavirus in early 2020 disrupted our plans, preventing us from organizing in-person conferences and RECOVER CPR training courses. As a result, our services to our valued members have been somewhat limited.

In response to these challenging circumstances, we've made the strategic decision to develop a website that will serve as a hub for sharing essential academic information regarding emergency and intensive care within our community. This website is envisioned as a platform where we can create and distribute distinctive content specific to JaVECCS. In addition to offering access to archived conference lectures and seminars by our esteemed speakers, we intend to provide fresh insights that will enrich our understanding of the emergency and intensive care field, making it even more appealing.

Our overarching goal at JaVECCS is to establish emergency and critical care as a prominent discipline within veterinary medicine in Japan, thus contributing to its future growth. We eagerly anticipate the participation of educators and veterinary nurses, as well as the collective growth of our community. Together, we can make this field even more enticing and impactful.
