Cavalcade Management Group, co-founded by the independently-owned practices Millbrook Equine, the Equine Clinic at OakenCroft, and Rhinebeck Equine is pleased to announce the return of the Future Equine Practitioners Weekend in 2023. Equine Veterinary students in all years of study from Guelph University, University of Pennsylvania, Tufts University, Cornell University, Montreal University, Ohio State University, Long Island University, and the Atlantic Veterinary College will convene for an educational experience September 9-10, 2023. 

Following a return to successful in-person programming in 2022, Cavalcade Management Group’s founding practices look forward to further expanding opportunities for equine veterinary students in 2023. The Future Equine Practitioners Weekend (FEPW) has the distinct goal of exposing veterinary students to a variety of hands-on experiences and discussions with current veterinarians. 

The multi-day program will feature clinic tours, hands-on wet labs covering a variety of topics, and business panel discussions with industry leaders. Additionally, this year’s itinerary will feature an expanded Intern Fair which will conclude the weekend. This year’s Intern Fair invites veterinary practices from around the country to participate alongside industry vendors for a unique networking experience. 

“The ability to develop a network amongst peers, receive direct mentoring by experienced practitioners and engage in focused practical education lays the groundwork for a successful career in equine medicine. We’ve been able to do that through The Future Equine Practitioners Weekend which has proven to be an invaluable experience for our upcoming equine colleagues,” says Ryan Penno, DVM, founder of the Future Equine Practitioners Weekend and owner of The Equine Clinic at OakenCroft.  

The Future Equine Practitioners Weekend is pleased to have the early collaborative support of Boehringer Ingelheim, Merck Animal Health, Hilltop BioSciences, and the New York Racing Association to help make this happen. To learn more about this event visit Events — Cavalcade Education.
