Equine rehabilitation survey

Which practical skills and knowledge are most useful for a lay individual (non-veterinarian) in the equine rehabilitation industry?

Researchers at the College of Agriculture, Health, and Natural Resources at the University of Connecticut have launched a survey to assess industry needs in equine rehabilitation management. 


Sarah Reed, PhD, associate professor of animal science, who is leading the research said:

“The field of equine sports medicine and rehabilitation is rapidly expanding, and there are increasing opportunities for non-veterinarians to operate equine rehabilitation facilities. However, throughout the United States, there are limited educational opportunities for undergraduate students to prepare for these high potential careers. The goal of the study is to determine what practical skills and theoretical knowledge are deemed most useful for employment in this industry, so we can build a curriculum to meet these needs.”

The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete, and can be found here:
