Continuing Education Opportunities from UVS

Upstate Veterinary Specialties has been approved by the New York State Education Department as a sponsor of continuing education for veterinarians and veterinary technicians. We are one of only a handful of organizations in the Capital Region that have been recognized as providers of high quality continuing education opportunities in the field of veterinary medicine.

Our specialists and experienced veterinary technicians present pertinent, up-to-date medical information to referring veterinarians and veterinary technicians at our continuing education lectures.

COVID-19 Protocols:

Updated: July 5, 2021

UVS is happy to welcome our clients back into the building! Please see the below information regarding reopening and our most current COVID-19 policies.

Clients arriving for their appointment with a specialist or an emergency visit will be directed to call our Client Relations team upon arrival. During your initial phone call with our team, clients will be given three options for proceeding with their appointment.

  1. Continue curbside services and remain in your vehicle.
  2. Wait in your vehicle until your appointment is ready and be taken directly into an exam room.
  3. Enter the building and wait in the lobby.
    • Appropriate spacing in the lobby must be available to proceed with option 3.
    • Please follow social distancing guidelines when in the lobby.

 

For an appointment or visit within the hospital, either in the lobby or straight to an exam room, we are limiting the number of visitors to two (2) individuals per patient.

Mask Policy:

Face masks are required in all public areas of the hospital. Please take the time to understand why we require masks within the hospital:

  1. UVS will not be asking clients to show proof of their vaccination status.
  2. Human healthcare facilities are one of the exceptions to the new, relaxed CDC masking guidelines. As a medical facility, we are following our human healthcare colleague’s lead.
  3. Our hospital’s work environment has many tight, shared spaces that do not allow for social distancing.
  4. Some of our clients and colleagues are not vaccinated, cannot be vaccinated, or have medical conditions that make them a higher risk for contracting COVID-19.

 

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter
