RLRI is going VIRTUAL in 2021!

Date: January 29 & 30

Real Life Real Impact is a spiritual retreat designed for veterinary students and professionals. During this 2-day event, students will have the opportunity to connect with Christian veterinarians in private practice, learn from CVM’s long-term field staff, find out about CVM short-term mission trips, fellowship with students from other veterinary schools, and be refreshed in their walk with Christ.

CVM wants you to walk away refreshed, knowing that you are a part of a community of Christian Veterinary Professionals that seek to live out their faith in their daily lives!


"This was the best conference I've ever attended! I walked away feeling full and hopeful, knowing that there are good-hearted and Jesus-loving veterinarians that are working hard for the Kingdom. Thank you for all veterinarians and coordinators who made this event possible. You have all changed my life in a single day."

"RLRI was such a wonderful experience of catching up with friends, worshiping and renewing passion for the Lord, learning from humble and kind veterinarians and others, honest conversations, delicious meals and fellowship...fabulous music. This has been my favorite weekend this year!"

"The whole weekend was incredibly encouraging. I left feeling refreshed and ready to enter clinics and, eventually, start my career as a veterinarian. Christian vets, I am convinced, are THE coolest people ever. I have renewed faith that God will lead me where He wants me to go, open the right doors, and do something awesome with my life."

"This was my first RLRI and I absolutely loved it! I met so many people that shared the same interests as me and I enjoyed talking to them and hearing about their experiences, while sharing mine! I also loved the speakers, the food, the services (e.g. the band), the tour of the vet school, and the evening challenges."
