General Surgery is a required clinical rotation for all 4th-year
students and interns.
Students perform elective surgical procedures commonly seen in
private practice -- such as spays and neuters -- under the direct
supervision of a veterinarian.
Services are provided for clients of the Veterinary Medical
Teaching Hospital as well as the Brazos Animal Shelter, the Austin
Humane Society, and the AFCAT program.
The General Surgery Service helps make our graduates among the
most surgically competent in the nation.
