This course will build upon topics covered in VMC 952 Equine Medicine and Surgery. Lectures will cover equine medical problems in more depth than in the previous course. Additional topics will also be included. This course is designed for students who plan to practice equine medicine after graduation.

This is part of the DVM curriculum revision designed to allow students to delve more deeply into areas of interest. The original course, VMC 952, was reduced by 1 credit hour. The proposed course will replace and enhance the reduced content.
