18.5 veterinarian CE credits approved by RACE – AAVSB
A first of its kind, two-day continuing education conference for regulatory and official racetrack veterinarians.
Presented by RMTC and NTRA Safety & Integrity Alliance
“Regulatory veterinarians hold a unique position in the protection of the health and welfare of the horse. The goal of this CE is to provide training directly related to their mission.”
“Consistency of protocols across North American racing is critical to protect the welfare of the traveling horse. It is therefore crucial that every track and regulatory authority ensure their veterinarians participate in this one-of-a-kind event.”
Participation in #RegVetCE is limited to active official vets employed or sponsored by a racetrack or regulatory authority. Select additional participants may be admitted at the discretion of organizers.
Registration is $250/person and includes all meals each day. The registration deadline is June 1, 2018
The Grayson-Jockey Club Welfare and Safety of the Racehorse Summit
The Regulatory Official Veterinary CE is designed to complement the Welfare and Safety of the Racehorse Summit (WSS). #RegVetCE attendees are encouraged to cross-register for both.
The agenda was developed by the RMTC and the NTRA Safety & Integrity Alliance in collaboration with a committee of Equine Medical Directors and racetrack veterinarians.
Approval for veterinary CE credits is anticipated in advance of the conference.
