Course will augment areas noted by the syllabus of core equine surgery and lameness presented in VMC952. In the course surgical alternatives, techniques and outcomes will be presented at a level that a student graduating with an equine or mixed focus could describe and discuss treatments with clients or comfortably function in an internship environment

Equine Medicine and surgery course (VMC952) has been downsized minimally present diseases and their potential treatments which is now what is considered core. That course will not provide details, alternatives or descriptions of various surgical treatments. A student desiring to practice in an equine environment will need additional information to converse and provide detail description and alternative treatments. This course will provide this information to allow a graduating student the confidence to function in an equine environment being private practice or internship.

College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
College of Veterinary MedicinenoneAs this course is unique, consults beyond CVM seemed unnecessary.
No new physical resources or faculty will be needed. The current equine faculty will blend the time commitment for this course into existing schedules.

The objective of this course will be to provide confidence in the pending veterinary  graduate with a equine or mixed focus as to their available to communicate surgery and lameness diagnostic and treatment alternatives. Specifically information will be provided in the areas of equine ophthalmology, imaging, surgery of the head, respiratory system, reproductive tracks, and advances in orthopedics. At the conclusion of the course the student should be capable of conversing and expressing advantages and disadvantages of various diagnostic , surgical, and lameness treatments as well as there outcomes as to success and failure.


Student Learning Outcomes

Students will be able to diagnose and advise on disorders of the equine eye and adjacent structures. Students will be capable of distinguishing abnormalities of the head by means of digital radiographs, CT and MRI scans and ultrasonography. They will be able to distinguish between diseases of the sinuses, nasal passages, pharynx ,larynx and guttural pouches and know current surgical techniques for correction. Diseases and surgeries related to the male and female reproductive tracks will be discussed and students should have confidence in applying them in and equine practice. Diagnosis based on imaging of commonly seen equine orthopedic diseases should be capable with confidence. Similarly regenerative therapies for treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and commonly performed orthopedic surgeries will be familiar.
