Time Event Location
8:00 am-2:30 pm

Student Equine Wet Lab - additional cost, limited seating

The goal of this one-day course is to provide veterinary students with an opportunity to learn about common reproductive procedures performed in equine clinical practice. Laboratory sessions will provide hands-on opportunities for semen collection, semen evaluation and processing, palpation and ultrasonography of the mare reproductive tract, collection and interpretation of common uterine diagnostics, and uterine lavage and intrauterine infusion for management of endometritis. To allow for a full day of wet labs, a series of online modules will be available to review the procedures that will be performed in the lab.
All students attending the wet lab should have watched the modules prior to August 3.

Students will arrive back at the Hilton by 2:45 pm to attend the student case presentations.
