morettaIt is with great pleasure that I invite you to attend one or both of our fall continuing education programs. I am very excited about the exceptional and diverse programs the FAEP council is presenting.

The 9th Annual Promoting Excellence Symposium will be held from October 17th – 20th at the legendary Boca Raton Resort & Club, a Waldorf Astoria property in Boca Raton, Florida. This is a fun, family oriented destination that offers world-class old-world elegance with modern luxury amenities. It has been a destination in itself on Florida’s east coast for more than 80 years.

This year’s symposium integrates a ‘whole horse’ approach with its equine sports medicine and rehabilitation topics. The symposium schedule features an in-depth ophthalmology program, an in-depth master class on the neck and back, and topics in performance horse medicine, cardiology, neurology, surgery, lameness, and imaging. Our popular rehabilitation tract offers current topics on the biomechanics of injury and case studies of rehabilitation protocols from ‘start to finish’ to take home. Our dynamic exhibitor marketplace will showcase the very latest in products and services available to the equine veterinary profession.

The 51st Annual Ocala Equine Conference, ‘For Practitioners by Practitioners’, offers outstanding equine CE on November 15th – 17th, 2013 in Ocala, Florida. Dr. Scott Palmer, past president of the American Association of Equine Practitioners, is our distinguished keynote speaker who will address the important topic of ‘Medication Issues in Racing’. Our educational program includes topics in alternative medicine, dentistry, dermatology, infectious disease, lameness and lower respiratory disease. The Ocala conference offers two full-day wet labs focusing on ‘Advanced Dentistry’ and ‘Field Procedures’ for practitioners who want to sharpen their skills and enhance their potential for increased revenue.

This issue of The Practitioner contains new and relevant articles for your practice. I keep my back copies of The Practitioner in my truck for quick reference on the road! The center spread of this issue of The Practitioner features the speakers, topics, schedule and registration details for the Ocala conference. We have launched conference websites to provide you with everything you need to know about The 9th Annual Promoting Excellence Symposium and The 51st Annual Ocala Equine Conference. For information on PES, please visit the Website. For information on Ocala please go here

I look forward to personally welcoming you to our fall continuing education meetings. We want to promote excellence in our profession by offering you smaller, more cohesive, and interactive colleague-to-colleague experiences. I encourage you to register today!
