About 1050 minutes of scientific talks on different subjects of equine medicine were mainly given by diplomates of the European Colleges for Equine Internal Medicine and Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia.

Furthermore young equine vets had the possibility to present cases and small research projects. The European College diplomates and the Vice President of the German Veterinary Chamber gave presentations on career options in equine medicine.

Dr. Bianca Schwarz, DipECEIM and Ambassador for YoungWEVA gave information on YoungWEVA and WEVA as well as the next WEVA congress in Budapest, Hungary.

With temperatures above 25°C, sunshine and a great social programme including BBQ, a local rock band and DJ the 1st VetCamp was a great experience for everybody involved.
