Continuing Education

The veterinarians and staff of BEMC are dedicated to client education, and believe that an educated client has the capacity to make the best health care decisions for their horses. To further this goal, we offer annual client continuing education meetings in late winter.

Client Continuing Education:


We have reorganized our continuing education program to hopefully reach more of you on the information you want by putting on a series of one hour lectures at Bend Equine Medical Center.  We will provide refreshments and a tour of the facility in addition to the lecture/demonstration.
