Prerequisite: 4th year DVM student
Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
This 4 week course will provide students with an initial one week of intensive clinical experience in equine primary care and three weeks with a NCSU CVM approved equine primary care practice. Students will be seeing a variety of primary care cases from CVM staff and faculty owned horses, state owned horses, and horses from non-profit organizations during the first week at Southern Pines; including vaccinations, dentistry, lameness, imaging, nasogastric intubation, and field surgery. This course is not an externship and students will have outcome assessments from the instructor as well as the veterinarian at the equine primary care practice. During the final three weeks, students will be exposed to a general equine primary care practice. Students will be expected to examine cases, discuss differentials, provide a treatment plan, perform treatments, and provide client communication. Instructor approval for enrollment required.

Nearly all of our 4th year clinical year courses are graded as HPMF (Honors, Pass, Marginal, Fail) except for the extramurals/special topics 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 coordinator  approved changing the grading basis for this course from S/U to HPMF.
