College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
College of Veterinary MedicineKirk NussOther therio DVM coursework meant to provide foundation for this course. This course is advanced content and takes place following other therio content.
As part of the CVM curriculum revision process, specific core DVM courses were targeted for credit hour reduction or elimination in order to accommodate new core courses and required elective courses. Faculty effort for these new courses will come from reallocation of faculty teaching effort based on these credit hour reductions and course eliminations as well as total departmental teaching needs. In addition, new faculty hires within all three departments may fulfill a portion of required teaching effort within these new core courses and core elective courses. Physical facilities for new courses will utilize existing lecture, laboratory and teaching animal resources and this will be done in concert with reductions in current use due to credit hour reductions and course elimination; this will create the necessary room within the room schedule and animal facilities without requiring additional lecture / laboratory space or increased numbers of teaching animals. Any expenses associated with new courses will be funded at the CVM level via the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs Office through already identified sources.

The objective of this course is to help students develop and master clinical skills in and knowledge of equine Theriogenology that are relevant to students who are planning to pursue a career in equine stud farm medicine.


Student Learning Outcomes

When given the relevant history for a mare or stallion with a complaint pertaining to reproductive status or infertility, students will be able to:


Perform transrectal palpation and ultrasound of the reproductive tract of the mare 


Perform a vaginal examination of the mare and collect samples for endometrial cytology and biopsy


Perform artificial insemination of the mare


Perform uterine lavage of the mare


Formulate a plan for synchronization of a mare and collect an embryo for transfer to a recipient mare


Perform a pregnancy examination in a mare and formulate a plan for management of a twin pregnancy


Collect semen from a stallion 


Perform a semen evaluation and prepare for fresh cooled shipment of semen
