Equine practitioners can invest in practical veterinary knowledge in diverse areas of equine medicine when the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) presents four continuing education meetings during summer 2015.

The slate of events includes a pair of 360° meetings, which combine lectures and wet labs into an intensive “boot camp” experience; and two Focus meetings, which present the latest evidence-based knowledge within a particular area of medicine.

  • 360° Diagnosing, Imaging and Treating from the Foot to the Fetlock:  June 28-July 1 at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colo. Meeting sponsors are Dechra Veterinary Products, FujiFilm Sonosite, Sound and Universal Imaging.
  • 360° Ophthalmology: July 8-11 at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Fla. Sponsorship is provided by Akorn Animal Health and FujiFilm Sonosite.
  • Focus on Ambulatory Medicine & Focus on Students: July 26-28 in Minneapolis, Minn. The meeting is sponsored by Merial and Sound.
  • Focus on Poor Performance:  Sept. 10-12 in Lexington, Ky. Sponsors are Luitpold Animal Health, Progressive Nutrition and Vetel Diagnostics.
