COURSE DESCRIPTION

Nowadays most equine practices have an endoscope at their disposal, which however might not get used as much as it could.  This two-day practical course was developed to provide practitioners with an update on equine endoscopy, respiratory conditions and especially with the practical skills to perform most routine diagnostic endoscopic procedures (incl. GI) currently used in equine practice. A panel of international experts who have dedicated a significant proportion of their careers to equine endoscopy and respiratory conditions are involved with this course and will be sharing invaluable tips and tricks.  The first day will focus on the upper/lower respiratory tract and sinoscopy and on the second day the gastrointestinal tract (incl. the mouth) will be featured.

The following highly illustrated lectures will be held in the mornings:  

  • Diagnostic Nasal & Upper Respiratory Endoscopy
  • Sinus Approaches & Sinoscopy  
  • Lower Respiratory Tract (incl. tracheal wash & bronchoalveolar lavage)
  • Making Sense of Lower Airway Test Results
  • Therapeutics for Lower Airway Conditions – What to do with what you see…     
  • The Guttural Pouches
  • Overground Respiratory Endoscopy
  • Oesophagus, Stomach & Duodenum
  • Interactive Gastroscopy – when do you need to treat?   
  • Clinical Endoscopy Case-Discussions

In the afternoons, the 7 hours small group sessions (3 – 5 attendees/endoscope) will provide attendees with plenty of opportunities to further develop their hands-on skills on live horses and specimens under the supervision of the experts.  Each attendee will rotate through the following practical stations:

  • Upper Respiratory Tract incl. Guttural Pouches
  • Lower Respiratory Tract incl. Tracheal Wash & Bronchoalveolar Lavage
  • Overground Endoscopy
  • Sinus Approaches & Sinoscopy
  • Oral Endoscopy
  • Gastroscopy

The course fee includes lunches at a restaurant, coffee/tea breaks, a wine & cheese reception, extensive course notes and a certificate of attendance. Attendees can choose to only attend the lectures (= Lectures Only) on this course or can register for the entire course (= Lectures & Practical Sessions).  Early course registration via the VetPD website is recommended as there are only a limited number of places available.

Dr. Bill Gilsenan grew up in suburban New Jersey with plans of becoming a veterinarian starting at an early age. He received his bachelor’s degree in Biology from Washington and Lee University in 2004 and his veterinary degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. Following an internship at Colorado State University, he began a large animal internal medicine residency at the New Bolton Center at the University of Pennsylvania. During his residency, he was awarded the William B. Boucher Award for Outstanding Teaching in 2010 and 2011. Dr. Gilsenan became board-certified in large animal internal medicine in 2012. He held a faculty position at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine until joining the staff at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital as an internal medicine specialist in 2015. He became a shareholder in the practice in 2020.

Dr. Gilsenan enjoys all aspects of equine internal medicine, emergency medicine and critical care medicine.

Dr. Brett Woodie attended North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine and earned his veterinary degree in 1995. Following graduation from veterinary college he was an intern at The Ohio State University from 1995-1996. Dr. Woodie then entered a surgery residency at The Ohio State University and spent another three years in Columbus, Ohio. During his surgery residency he completed a Master’s of Science degree. He then moved to northern Virginia where he was a clinical instructor for a year in equine surgery at Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center. He achieved Diplomate status with the American College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2000. His next job was as an Assistant Professor of Large Animal Surgery at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. During this time his research focus was on equine upper airway disorders. Then in 2003 he had the opportunity to move to Lexington, Kentucky and begin his job with Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital. He has been a surgeon at Rood and Riddle since that time. Diagnosis and treatment of equine upper airway problems is one of his main interests. Dr. Woodie has lectured nationally and internationally on the diagnosis and treatment of equine upper airway problems. He is co-organizer of the Equine Upper Airway Symposium. This symposium is held annually in Lexington, KY

Michael graduated from the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1988.  Following 4 years in private veterinary practice, he completed an equine internal medicine residency at the Marion DuPont Scott Equine Medical Center in Leesburg, VA while also earning a Masters of Science in Veterinary Science from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 1995.  Michael then earned a PhD at Johns Hopkins University in Respiratory Physiology in 1999.  He moved to Oklahoma State University in 1998, where he has progressed to his current rank as Professor and John Oxley Endowed Chair in Equine Sports Medicine.  Michael is board-certified in the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation – in the latter, he is currently slated to serve as President of the ACVSMR from 2019-2020.  He has been awarded the Regents Distinguished Research Award, twice been awarded the Pfizer/Zoetis Award for Research Excellence, and was the inaugural ACVIM Hero in Medicine for his research in the pathophysiology of exercise-related illnesses.  Dr. Davis’s current area of research involves how athletic conditioning improves skeletal muscle function – from uptake of oxidizable substrates to the mitochondrial mechanisms for maximizing ATP production from those substrates.
