VTMED 5601 - Small Animal Community Practice


     
Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer. 2 credits. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: fourth-year veterinary students. Required component of Clinical Rotations (Foundation Course VI).

P. Carney, C. Cazer, B.G. Collins, I. Hernandez, L. Kaplan, M. Porter, Staff.

Our community practice, housed in a stand-alone facility as of June 2018, offers full services for our patients of all life stages including preventive medicine, radiology, dentistry, and surgery. Our primary care practice is designed to provide our clinical year students with experience in appointments, procedures, surgery, client communications, and cloud-based electronic medical records to prepare them as entry level veterinarians upon graduation from the CUCVM. The goals and design of the Small Animal Community Practice are to model a non-academic general practice setting where students act as primary case clinicians collecting histories, performing physical exams, assessing their patients, and creating diagnostic and therapeutic plans individualized to a given patient and client. Student clinicians are supervised by rotation faculty and supported by licensed veterinary technicians.
