You will learn advanced techniques in xray, ultrasound (injections of the hip, neck, SI and arterial stem cell perfusions), shockwave, using Prostride, A2M, PRP, and IRAP. Building relationships with the best horses, owners, trainers, and farriers in the business is sure to follow. Check out @drlaurasg for visuals of the career path!
