The AAEP student chapter strives to bring students information and opportunities for experience that they may not get from the formal curriculum. Monthly meetings are usually held over the noon hour with lunch provided, featuring speakers who have demonstrated excellence within their field. Throughout the semester the organization hosts seminars for hands-on experience with joint injections, laparoscopy, equine dentistry, etc. Members will be connected with the National AAEP and introduced to current ethical issues, pharmaceutical products, medical procedures, and professional considerations of interest, such as residency programs. Additionally, members will be able to go to National AAEP Conventions, visit various equine clinics, and learn about equine cases through ‘Equine Rounds’ with the clinicians from the medical center. Students interested in equine medicine and those that have a recreational interest in the equine species are encouraged to join.
