If your clients’ horses compete in a ring, over a course or on a racetrack, or if you simply want to boost your lameness and sports medicine proficiency, a new, online continuing education offering from the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) will furnish the diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitative strategies critical to clinical success of difficult performance-related cases.
The AAEP’s Virtual Summer CE Series, “Cracking the Performance Horse Code: Interdisciplinary Strategies to Maximize Clinical Outcomes,” will present a pair of live, interconnected, two-hour sessions each week throughout August. Anchored by a rotating group of dynamic presenters and featuring a diverse format of panel discussions, case examples and live consultations, sessions will highlight the collaborative crosstalk that occurs between specialists and practitioners en route to positive case outcomes. Attendees’ participation during the real-time discussions and Q&A sessions will reinforce the clinical strategies acquired.
The series’ weekly live schedule follows; all sessions will also be available on demand as a convenience to attendees unable to participate in one or more of the live sessions.
