Fe ter Woort


Dr Fe ter Woort graduated from the University of Liège (Belgium) in 2008. She did her internship at the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island (Canada) where she developed an interest in equine respiratory research. She pursued this further during her residency in Large Animal Internal Medicine at the University of Guelph (Canada), where she combined her clinical training with a graduate degree. Her research focused on Inflammatory Airway Disease in actively racing horses and in 2012 she defended her thesis to receive a DVSc degree from the University of Guelph. After becoming a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in 2013, she decided to pursue her interest in equine sports medicine further. She successfully completed a 2 year Equine Ultrasound and Cardiology Fellowship at New Bolton Center (USA). During this time, she received extensive clinical training in cardiology. She worked with equine athletes of all levels requiring varied approaches, from poor performance evaluations and pre-purchase exams of high level athletes, to routine annual echocardiograms of well-loved patients with heart disease. In addition to her cardiology training, Fe developed her ultrasound skills during these 2 years. Ultrasound evaluations of the suspensory ligament, digital sheath, stifle, hock, abdomen and thorax as well as various ultrasound guided procedures were a part of her routine daily activities. Fe has presented her research and spoken at several international conferences (World Equine Airway Symposium, Forum of the American College of Internal Medicine, Veterinary Respiratory Society). In 2015 she joins the ESMP and is excited to be a part of the team providing high level specialty service to clients and referring veterinarians. In addition, she has a strong interest in pursuing clinical research that will help horses perform better and live healthier lives.
Emmanuelle van Erck authored over 50 peer-reviewed scientific articles and regularly lectures at international conferences. She is a member of the FEI expert committee on prohibited substances and doping.
