Fall, spring, summer. 2 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: VTMED 5510 . Enrollment limited to: third- and fourth-year veterinary students. Maximum enrollment 2 per rotation.

M. Martin.

The practice of laboratory-animal medicine requires a combination of preventive programs, clinical skills, knowledge of various species’ biologies, familiarity with research methodology, and acquaintance with state and federal regulations. This course is an introduction to that specialty. Students accompany laboratory-animal veterinarians on clinical rounds of Cornell’s research-animal housing and participate in laboratory diagnostic work. Review sessions are conducted on the biology, medicine, pathology, and husbandry of rodents, rabbits, and primates and on current legislation regulating the care and use of research animals. The course may include field trips to other institutions.
