Teaching future equine veterinarians and specialists plays a large role in our department’s efforts at NC State College of Veterinary Medicine. The equine clinical sciences program encompasses clinical service, research, and teaching. Clinical service is related to work in the NC State Veterinary Hospital for referring veterinarians and their clients or can occur in the hospital of a requesting veterinarian.
Research involves examining hospital data retrospectively or prospectively or doing basic studies. Teaching includes lecturing and working with veterinary students in the clinics, working with house officers and post-graduate students, or developing training programs in the Equine Hospital or in outreach programs for practicing veterinarians.
