Dr. Selma Latif earned her veterinary degree in 2007 at the University of Berne, Switzerland. In 2008, she graduated from the International Academy of Veterinary Chiropractic (IAVC).
She went on writing her doctoral thesis on saddle fit in racehorses at the University of Zurich which was followed by the residency in Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation (ACVSMR, certification in 2016).
As a research associate at the University of Zurich she studies the interaction between horse, saddle and rider. In daily practice, her main focus lies in the fusion of the perspectives of rider, trainer and veterinarian to best perform health and exercise management of the equine athlete.
“Through countless further training courses (orthopedics, manual therapy, movement training, physical methods, sports medicine, etc.) in Switzerland and abroad, I have been able to specialize in the field of sports medicine and rehabilitation in horses in recent years.”
