OEPS To Host Seminar In Effort To Recruit More Vets

In an effort to encourage students to enter equine practice upon graduation, the Opportunities in Equine Practice Seminar (OEPS) will hold a professional forum Sept. 1-3 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Lexington, Kentucky. After a ten-year hiatus, the event was re-established to address the emerging crisis of the diminishing number of graduating veterinary students entering equine practice.

The seminar will host third-year veterinary students (Class of 2025) with presentations by practitioners in various disciplines. The estimated 200 attendees will be able to engage in interactive discussions with industry partners, tour equine hospitals, local horse farms and Keeneland racetrack and participate in workshops.

“We are thrilled to announce the return of OEPS and welcome veterinary students, equine practitioners and industry partners to join us for an amazing educational and networking opportunity,” said lead organizer Dr. Craig Lesser. “With dwindling numbers of students pursuing careers in equine practice, we aim to inspire and equip students with knowledge about the vast opportunities within equine practice that make our careers uniquely gratifying.”
