BEVA and AAEP introduce Transatlantic Equine Clinics
The clinics will be held every other month and are free for BEVA and AAEP members.
Experts from the UK and USA to discuss their approach to clinical conundrums in equine practice.

BEVA has teamed up with its transatlantic equivalent, the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP), to launch a series of virtual Transatlantic Equine Clinics.

The sessions will see experts from the UK and USA discuss and debate their approach to 'clinical conundrums' in equine veterinary practice. The first clinic, held in April, saw Roger Smith, Dean Richardson and Luis Rubio-Martinez talk about the treatment of distal limb orthopaedic infections. 

The next clinic takes place on Wednesday, 30 June with Simon Peek Thomas Divers and Sarah Smith debating what’s new in investigating and managing liver disease'. In August, Scott Pirie and David Freeman will go head-to-head on the causes and management of reflux in post-operative colics.

“The equine world is a small one, and the pandemic has highlighted how close everyone in that world is, online," commented BEVA’s learning manager Sarah Gaspar. “We are delighted to be running this series of focussed discussions with our colleagues in the States - comparing our ideas, finding out who does what, why and whether it works better there or over here.” 

The clinics will be held every other month and are free for BEVA and AAEP members. Other sessions cover subchondral bone cysts of the stifle (October) and the management of the high-risk pregnancy (December).
