VTMED 6733 - Veterinarians and Food-Animal Production Systems: An Introduction


     
Spring. 1 credit. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: first and second year veterinary students or permission of instructor.

D. V. Nydam, speakers.

This seminar course uses an interactive format and multiple experts from their fields to introduce future veterinarians to various food-animal production systems, how veterinarians interact with them, and the synergy between these systems and veterinarians in society. Each week the production structure of the dairy, beef, swine, poultry, or aquaculture industry, veterinarians’ role in them, and career opportunities and expectations are discussed. The offering is intended for first- or second-year students so that they can plan appropriately to take additional courses or set up externships in the following years.
