2015 FAEP President

MillerWith summer and Labor Day behind us, your FAEP is celebrating another successful Student Appreciation Day in Ocala. This collaboration between FAEP members, three private veterinary practices and numerous volunteers provides hands-on experience for UF veterinary students with an equine interest, and concentrates on five areas: joint injections, regional nerve blocks, digital radiography, stallion collection/semen evaluation and processing, and digital ultrasonographic imaging. We take pride in being able to offer this kind of experience to UF students and can only do this because of the financial support from our educational partners. I would like to give a heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to this event.

We are making final preparations for the 11th Annual Promoting Excellence Symposium (PES), which is scheduled for October 15–17, 2015 in Naples, FL. I hope you are planning to join us for an exceptional program, themed “Insights into Optimizing Equine Athletic Performance.” With limited seats remaining and anticipated record attendance, I encourage you to register to secure your place in the Biomechanics Wet Lab, which will be instructed by the foremost equine musculoskeletal system anatomist, Professor Jean-Marie Denoix. This year PES provides 48 hours of CE and includes a rehabilitation track that is open to veterinarians and rehabilitation professionals, as well as sessions both in dispensing legend drugs and in laws and rules for Florida-licensed veterinarians, as required for Florida license renewal in 2016. Along with our exceptional CE schedule, we’ve programmed special events that will give you valuable opportunities to socialize and network with colleagues, friends and new acquaintances, as well as make your conference experience enjoyable and memorable. You may find the details of each lecture, as well as other aspects of the conference, here.

We are also well on our way to planning next year’s CE offerings. You will soon begin to hear more details about the Ocala Equine Conference in January 2016, our Equine Foot Symposium in Summer 2016, and PES 2016. Next year is also a license renewal year, and Florida licensed veterinarians need to secure their required CE by May 31, 2016.

As always, please feel free to contact me, any member of the FAEP Council, or anyone in the FVMA office with your questions or suggestions. We are proud to serve in a leadership capacity on your behalf. See you in Naples!
