Benefits of Your AAEP Membership

AAEP Membership

How This Benefits Your Practice:

Member-only rates to the world’s premier equine CE events

The Annual Convention, which is the largest meeting of equine veterinarians in the world, hosting over 100 hours of classroom-style seminars and small discussion-oriented forums about equine veterinary medicine and techniques as well as professional development.

The Resort Symposium, a great combination of education, networking and play.

Free Online CE

Obtain CE credits at no cost from the convenience of your home or office using the AAEP Anywhere online learning platform. Most courses are RACE accredited.

Copy of the Proceedings

A $160 value, this is a collection of the scientific papers presented at the most recent annual convention.

Equine Veterinary Education (EVE) monthly research journal

A refereed educational journal designed to keep the practicing veterinarian up to date with developments in equine medicine and surgery (a $140 value).

Document Retrieval Service

Maintaining subscriptions to multiple medical journals can be expensive and, without institutional support, obtaining veterinary literature to research a topic or satisfy your medical curiosity can be burdensome. AAEP now provides you with a complimentary service of database search and document delivery!
