Overview

Plans are underway for the 2021-22 virtual series of equine continuing education (CE) presentations offered by members of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine's (WCVM) clinical team.

While details are still being finalized, each online presentation will take place on Wednesday evenings (6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. CST) from October 2021 to March 2022. 

Here's a tentative list of presentation/panel discussion topics for the upcoming equine health series: 

  • emergency management
  • medical imaging
  • laminitis
  • dermatology
  • equine parvovirus
  • diagnostic testing and Prairie Diagnostic Services
  • case-based, rounds-style discussion
  • prescribing of drugs and therapeutic decision cascade
  • strangles and EHV-1, management of infectious outbreaks and VMC's policy for horses showing neurologic signs (possible EHV-1 cases)
  • equine surgery 

Note: the WCVM will seek approval for CE hours from provincial veterinary medical associations once the series is finalized.  

Registration

The WCVM's 2021-22 equine health CE seminar series is open to veterinarians and other veterinary professionals. The cost per session is $25 (plus GST).
