Designed by veterinarians for veterinarians, the Oquendo Center is WVC’s state-of-the-art clinical hands-on training facility.

Veterinarians and their guests can host hands-on lab courses, workshops, symposiums and demonstrations in our facility dedicated to veterinary medicine. All of our multi-purpose rooms are each configurable with either closed (soundproof) or open air walls. Additionally, we have the unique ability to accommodate 12 fully-equipped stations in our surgery suite, allowing for a more unified, hands-on learning experience.

The Oquendo Center also boasts an ultramodern auditorium. Wired from one end to the other, each of its 190 seats has a personal electrical outlet. This spacious room features interactive pen display technology, allowing the audience to closely view and follow each step. What’s more, the same presentation can be viewed simultaneously in various other rooms throughout the building, as well as other room activities (surgical techniques or demonstrations) can be viewed by an audience of 190 in the auditorium.

Yet another benefit is the built-in A/V capability – all rooms including the auditorium are already fully equipped, saving both the time and money normally incurred from a third party solution. As an added bonus, free wireless Internet service runs throughout the facility. The Oquendo Center is the perfect place for any veterinary event.

At the Oquendo Center, we don’t follow the “a la carte” method for the smaller items you may need for an event. For that reason, we provide A/V, scrubs, PPE, and basic instrumentation for your veterinary event.
