Large Animal Medicine

Thank you for your interest in our large animal internal medicine residency program. We are proud of our program and the ultimate professional success of our current and former residents. Although a complete description of our program might be daunting, there are a number of features of our program that we would like to bring to your attention.

  • Three-year program that allows adequate time to train and prepare for certification by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM), including a total of 6 months of professional development time to prepare for board-certification
  • 100% rate of certification by ACVIM (i.e., 100% pass rate) for our last 12 residents
  • A large, diverse internal medicine caseload
  • Exceptional facilities and technical staff in the teaching hospital
  • Opportunity to obtain extensive experience with large animal ultrasonography under the auspices of 2 ACVIM diplomates with ultrasound expertise and an ultrasound technician
  • Opportunity to participate in an active food animal service (primarily beef cattle and meat goats) with 2 ACVIM diplomates
  • Opportunity to enhance clinical experience with lameness (musculoskeletal disorders) because our lameness service is in the Medicine Section
  • Opportunity to evaluate and manage horses with colic
  • Funding for travel and other academic uses (e.g., photocopying, making slides)
  • Excellent opportunities for clinical research projects (with emphasis on epidemiology, gastroenterology, and infectious diseases)
  • Opportunities for graduate study concurrent with residency training (Link to CVM Graduate Studies Homepage and Office of Graduate Studies here?)
  • Strong faculty commitment toward our residents attaining board-certification
  • A friendly, collegial work environment
