Newmarket Orthopaedic Discussion Group
This informal group meets on around the third Thursday of each month (unless otherwise stated) to discuss contemporary issues in equine orthopaedics, as well as interesting areas of cross-over from other species. The target audience is experienced clinicians and academics, to ensure a high level of discussion. It is not basic CPD, but there will be useful information for the less experienced and specialised.
Thanks to sponsorship from the Beaufort Cottage Educational Trust, there is no charge for attendance. All veterinary surgeons, farriers, nurses and students are welcome. If you would like to be added to the email invitation list for future events, please contact Andy Bathe.
