The Equine Veterinarians Australia Group membership to veterinarians who treat horses as part of their practice and is the premier provider of continuing professional development for equine veterinarians in Australia.

With an emphasis on providing the support members need to remain at the forefront of equine veterinary medicine, the Group also represents the interests of members to governments and equine industry groups.

Equine Veterinarians Australia Group maintains strong links with both equine organisations and horse owners. An important role for the Group is providing advice and information to the people who care for horses to ensure that Australian horses enjoy the best possible health and welfare.

Equine Veterinarians Australia Group was formed in 1971 and presently has 1,000 members in Australia, New Zealand, England, Hong Kong, Singapore, USA, and South Africa.

Continuing professional development

The Equine Veterinarians Australia Group is the premier provider of continuing professional development for equine veterinarians in Australia.

Our flagship continuing professional development event of the year, the Bain Fallon Memorial Lectures provides equine veterinarians and mixed practitioners with access to renowned international and local speakers, as well as hands-on workshops and a vibrant social program. There are a number of opportunities available at Bain Fallon for sponsors and trade exhibitors to attend and communicate with the largest audience of equine veterinarians of any event in Australia. Proceedings from the Bain Fallon Memorial Lectures can be viewed and searched via the VetEd library.

For those of you attending the annual AVA Conference, the Group is heavily involved in the ever-growing Equine stream, another fantastic opportunity to attend by world-class lectures on a variety of topical, current subjects, tailored to the interests of both mixed and equine only practitioners.

Other CPD member benefits include engaging Equine Veterinarians Australia Group State Meetings, and a variety of practical workshops throughout the year.
