We respond to the needs of the environment by training teachers trained in the proper management of problems in the clinical and surgical areas of equines, as well as in the areas of preventive medicine and epidemiology of said population.

The program has academic bases to develop in professionals the capacities to solve problems associated with the health of horses, with an individual and population vision.

The master's degree is framed by two lines of deepening, one in internal medicine and the other in surgery.

The objective of these areas is to obtain a greater degree of specialization in clinical and surgical areas, as required by the environment today.

The training process has firm theoretical foundations and high applicability in practical fields.
