Equine veterinarians will acquire information about the latest diagnostic methods and treatments in the field of sport horse medicine at the American Association of Equine Practitioners’ (AAEP) 19th Annual Resort Symposium, to be held Jan. 30–Feb. 1, 2017, at The Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort and Spa.

During three half-day educational sessions, attendees will learn to distinguish the different presentations of performance problems in the sport horse from neurologic to orthopedic, employ the appropriate imaging technique to make the diagnosis, and administer the proper treatment and rehabilitation. Presenters are Amy Johnson, DVM, Dipl. ACVIM; Sarah Puchalski, DVM, Dipl. ACVR, and Tracy Turner, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVS, ACVSMR, leading authorities in the fields of neurology, imaging, and sports medicine, respectively.

Following sessions, attendees will want to grab the sunscreen for some midwinter fun in the Caribbean sun on U.S. News & World Report Travel’s No. 1 beach in the world for 2015–16. They can also join their veterinary colleagues for optional group excursions that include a catamaran sail, cultural safari tour, and horseback riding on the beach.

The symposium qualifies attendees for 15 continuing education credits and is sponsored by AAEP Educational Partners IDEXX and Merial.
