Meet the 2024 Committee

Every year the BEVA president appoints a committee responsible for the programme. A Committee Chair is appointed and is supported by our programme guardians to identify the right topics and speakers for the programme.

Michael Schramme, Committee Chair

Michael qualified from the Rijksuniversiteit Gent, Belgium, in 1985. He has since worked as an equine surgeon at the University of Ghent, the Royal Veterinary College, the Animal Health Trust, Cornell University, North Carolina State University and the Ecole Nationale Veterinaire de Lyon in France, where he is a full Professor in Equine Surgery and Orthopaedics. He is a Diplomate of the European and American Colleges of Veterinary Surgeons and of the European College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation, and an Associate of the European College of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging. He is the current President of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons and a past President of the European Society of Veterinary Orthopaedics and Traumatology. He has an interest in all aspects of equine surgery, lameness and diagnostic imaging, with special emphasis on MRI and regenerative medicine.
