Small Animal Clinical Sciences
Small Animal Clinical Sciences has an active research program involving small animal species and wildlife species. Faculty interests include retinal disease in dogs, magnetic resonance imaging, exercise induced collapse in Labrador Retrievers, immune mediated disease, orthopedic surgery, pain control, soft tissue surgery and nutrition.
Graduate programs are only available in conjunction with a clinical residency program. Candidates must be appointed to one of our residency programs before applying to do graduate studies in this department. Residency programs offered vary from year to year but may include small animal internal medicine, small animal surgery, ophthalmology, anesthesiology, dentistry, medical imaging, oncology, and exotic, wildlife and zoological medicine.
A number of these residency programs are filled through the Veterinary Internship/Residency Matching Program (VIRMP). Go to the VIRMP web site for details on residency positions available through the VIRMP and application instructions.
The small animal clinical sciences graduate student/residency program provides advanced, specialized postgraduate clinical training in veterinary medicine with major emphasis on preparation for board certification. The programs are directed toward the development of expertise and competence in the specialty and the building of a foundation for academic pursuits such as teaching, writing and clinical research.
