This 3.5 day interactive course consists of a series of small group discussions and hands-on labs with a focus on muscular, neurologic, gastrointestinal, and urinary systems in horses. This course is designed and prioritized for first and second year LAIM (equine emphasis) candidates and, if space may be available, for third year candidates and Diplomates who may wish to advance their knowledge and skills.


Attendees are encouraged to bring a challenging case they have worked on for evening presentation and discussion with candidates and the course instructors. Another important goal of the course is to allow ACVIM-LA candidates, as future LAIM Diplomates and colleagues, to get to know each other as well as the group of LAIM Diplomates serving as course instructors.


Upon completion of the course, you will be able to:

  1. Develop an appropriate list of differential diagnoses for disorders of the gastrointestinal, hepatic, urinary, muscular, and neurologic systems of horses.
  2. Determine a logical diagnostic approach to disorders of these systems.
  3. Institute appropriate therapeutic plans for horses with disorders of these systems.
  4. Have the confidence to pursue further experience with the diagnostic procedures that were practiced and/or observed.


Your registration fee includes:

  • Course materials
