SCAAEP - Student Chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners

 

SCAAEP Website

The KSU Student Chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners is an organization whose goal is to provide veterinary students with increased exposure to issues of special interest in the equine industry.

The level of experience in the equine industry is of no importance for club members. All students, from those with no horse experience to owners, experienced show and race trainers, rodeoers and farriers can benefit from membership in this organization. All that is required to profit from membership is a desire to learn.

Monthly meetings feature respected faculty, both veterinary and non-veterinary equine specialists, as well as equine practitioners and equine producers. Surgery, medicine, practice management and equine facilities are just some of the topics discussed. Wet labs, fund-raisers, continuing education conferences, Equine Emergency Team and Foal Watch are some of the "hands on" activities available to members. SCAAEP club advisors are dedicated to helping members learn more about the equine industry. Student members also have the option of joining the AAEP and receiving full membership benefits at a discounted rate.

The offices of President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer are filled through elections at the December meeting. The President serves on the SCAVMA executive board and on the SCAAEP executive council. Each class selects a class representative to keep his/her class updated on club news. SCAAEP invites any interested KSU/CVM student to join!
