AAEP Summer CE to Feature Equine Colic, Practice Management

American Association of Equine Practitioners


The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) will journey to Canada this summer for its jointly held continuing-education meetings, Focus 2005 and the 13th Annual Practice Management Seminar. The meetings will take place July 31 – August 2 at the Hilton Quebec in historic Quebec City.

The topic of this year’s Focus meeting is equine colic. As the number-one killer of horses, colic presents a serious health concern for the equine population and the veterinarians who treat this potentially life-threatening condition. The top researchers and practitioners in veterinary medicine will guide attendees through an in-depth exploration of colic, including risk factors, diagnostic techniques and surgical options. Focus is sponsored by AAEP Educational Partner Bayer.

The popular Practice Management Seminar will tackle the challenging business management issues practitioners face daily. Through interactive workshops, subjects such as enhancing the value of your practice, equine practice software and team development will be discussed. The schedule also includes breakout sessions that address concerns specific to different practice types. Boehringer Ingelheim, an AAEP Educational Partner, continues its sponsorship of the seminar.

An additional continuing-education option for attendees is the Eighth International Colic Research Symposium, to be held August 3-5. The Symposium, produced by the AAEP Foundation with the support of Boehringer Ingelheim, will provide a forum for researchers and clinicians to present and discuss the most recent findings on diseases of the equine acute abdomen. Formal scientific presentations will be followed by open discussions, and poster presentations will also be featured.

For more information about Focus 2005, the 13th Annual Practice Management Seminar or the Eighth International Equine Colic Symposium, visit www.aaep.org or call the AAEP office at (859) 233-0147. The cutoff date for the early registration fee is July 15.

The American Association of Equine Practitioners, headquartered in Lexington, Ky., was founded in 1954 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of the horse. Currently, the AAEP reaches more than 5 million horse owners through its over 8,000 members worldwide and is actively involved in ethics issues, practice management, research and continuing education in the equine veterinary profession and horse industry.
