Veterinarians and veterinary medical students
Taught by an associate teaching professor from the University of Missouri, the course aims to increase the depth of understanding of how the equine hind limb functions by examining five abnormalities:
- Fibrotic Myopathy
- Patella Luxation
- Upward Patella Fixation
- Peroneus Tertius Rupture
Each video module shows a horse experiencing one of these abnormalities and offers a lesson detailing three points:
- How the limb normally functions
- Why that isn’t happening
- What treatment options are available
“By looking at these situations closely, not only will you learn to recognize and diagnose the clinical signs of selected syndromes but you will begin to see the anatomy and mechanics within the horse and increase your ability to understand additional limb problems,” says instructor Joanne Kramer.
The $90 course meets the continuing education requirements for the Missouri State Veterinary Board. Participants must pass a 20-question quiz with a score of 75 percent or higher to receive a completion certificate.
Online education offers convenience and flexibility. Participants can log in at any time to take all lessons at once or break the training up into individual components.
