Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
Senior DVM students will have the opportunity to undertake an elective rotation in an approved practice externship in a large animal practice a) food animal/rural or b) equine/mixed animal. The practice opportunity will meet the need recognized by students, CVM faculty and private practice colleagues alike to increase "hands on" experience in a private practice setting. Private practice experiences are available for year 1 - 3 students through the selective offerings. Presently, senior studentshave the opportunity to experience private practice by arranging an externship as an elective. However, initiating an elective course will ensure consistency between experiences, with clear expectations to achieve an approved level of learning/skills objectives with verification from the practice. Practitioners will be valuable partners in the education process in the senior year, providing access to individual animal and herd-related clinical diversity that is increasingly difficult to offer in the academic setting.

Nearly all of our 4th year clinical year courses are graded as HPMF (Honors, Pass, Marginal, Fail) except for the extramurals courses. In order to align the grading scale and to allow faculty greater flexibility in addressing poor (or outstanding) performances without resulting in a fail (and subsequent dismissal from DVM program), the extramural coordinators and our curriculum committee approved changing the grading basis for this course from S/U to HPMF.
