Organisers have announced that the first International Symposium in Animal Musculoskeletal Practice (ISAMP) will be held at the University of Warwick from November 28-30, 2014.

This one-of-a-kind event brings together experts from over the world to create three days of informative lectures, sharing their expertise as well as the very latest research and techniques available in animal health.
Gail Williams, veterinary physiotherapist and organiser of ISAMP 2014, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to bring an event of this calibre to the UK.”

The event will be formally opened by RCVS president Peter Jinman, and will feature Dr Hilary Clayton and Dr Barbara Bockstahler as keynote speakers.

Dr Williams explained: “Each day’s programme is packed with information delivered by some of the leading names in the industry, and we’ve also included lunch and refreshments too, to really add to the experience. It’s aimed at professionals – such as vets, vet nurses, veterinary physios, students and animal therapists – but it’s the kind of event that dedicated owners could learn a lot from too.”

In addition to the keynote speakers, Prof John Hutchinson and Dr Sarah Channon from the Royal Veterinary College, Russell Guire from Centaur Biomechanics, Helen Morrell from Surrey Vet Physio and farrier Ben Benson will also be attending, to bring different elements to the day.
Dr Williams adde: “The programme includes so much, from the latest research on movement to gait analysis for equines, rehabilitation of the canine amputee to biomechanics of the canine gait.

“People are able to come for one day, two days or the full conference, and we’ve been able to negotiate great rates on accommodation too. Attendees can even bring their partners who can explore Warwick, Stratford on Avon and the surrounding towns while the delegates enjoy the conference.”

Prices start from £195 for a one-day pass, while a whole conference package – including three day pass, accommodation for two nights and a ticket to the Saturday Banquet – costs £600 (or £500 for Association for the Scientific Study of Veterinary and Animal Physiotherapy (ASSVAP) members).
