The Essentials of Equine Practice course has run every two years since 2001 and has been expertly composed for recent graduates, and those in their first few years of practice, who intend to work in equine ambulatory practice. Previous delegates have also included those with more experience wishing to refresh their knowledge of general equine practice.
The broad theme is an evidence-based and practice approach to common clinical scenarios. The three days mainly consist of short and punchy presentations, with an afternoon of practical skills training at Liphook Equine Hospital.
The most important part of all is our emphasis on community; come and hang out with current and ex-house vets (our interns), ambulatory vets, internal medicine and surgical specialists, diversifiers, and clinical researchers. Quiz us on our career paths, motivations, and how we make being an equine vet work for us. Let us help support you through your journey in equine practice. There are plenty of chances to meet our team through the course, especially during the evening events: a Friday evening race meeting at Goodwood (with a world- famous DJ afterwards) and a course supper on the Saturday night!
All lectures and accommodation are at West Dean House, a beautiful mansion nestled in the South Downs National Park. All meals, racing and accommodation are included in the registration fee. 2022 will be the 21stanniversary of the course and it promises to be our best ever!
