The Campaign for NC State CVM

This year’s program for Veterinarians, Vet Techs, and Students will be available exclusively on demand. Registrants will have access to the course content from April 10th – June 30th.

The annual Equine Health Symposium, sponsored by the NC State Student Chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (SCAAEP), provides equine focused veterinary professionals with practical, up-to-date information on topics useful in everyday practice.

The topics presented at this year’s virtual on demand symposium will be Imaging Equipment in the Field and Anesthesia/Analgesia in the Field.

All proceeds will support the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine Equine Health Program and the Student Chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners at North Carolina State University (SCAAEP).
