Fall, spring, summer. 1 credit. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: first-, second-, third-, and fourth-year veterinary students. Course may be repeated for credit twice.

G. V. Kollias, staff.

Introduces veterinary students to primary care for native wildlife and to wildlife issues that practicing veterinarians face on a daily basis.  Students are responsible for the assessment, physical examination, and medical care of native wildlife presented to the Cornell University Wildlife Health Center by the public and local wildlife rehabilitators.  Student activities are directly supervised and assessed by faculty and residents on a daily basis. Scheduling is organized by a designated student supervisor.  Successful completion of the course requires 40 hours of satisfactory supervised participation per semester in the clinic.  Clinic times will be appropriately scheduled throughout the semester.  Students are required to submit two case summaries or alternatives approved by the course leader, before the end of the semester and a log of clinical hours and attending resident/faculty (see table on course home page).
