Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: first-, second-, third-, and fourth-year veterinary students or permission of instructor.


Organized as a traditional anatomy course that relies primarily on students learning the anatomy of horses through hands-on dissection laboratories augmented by lectures and highlighted by clinical correlations. An understanding of anatomy that provides the foundation for surgery and medicine. Its relevance to clinical practice is emphasized by the regional approach to dissection. Most lectures emphasize structural-functional correlations that are unique or important in the horse. Student dissection cadavers are supplemented by skeletal materials, radiographs, models, preserved predissected specimens, and fresh specimens when available. A live horse will be available for palpation.
