The Department of Clinical Sciences is dedicated to clinical and academic excellence and focuses on the issues affecting companion animals and horses. Faculty members have specialty training and represent the following disciplines: Anesthesiology, Clinical Pharmacology, Emergency/Critical Care, Primary Care, Neurology, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Radiology, Small Animal Surgery, Small Animal Internal Medicine, Equine Surgery and Equine Medicine. Our faculty members teach veterinary students these disciplines throughout the curriculum. Veterinarians in the Department of Clinical Sciences hold appointments in the Animal Health Center where they provide clinical service to animal owners and referring veterinarians. Third and fourth year veterinary students spend much of their time in the Animal Health Center, working alongside clinicians, interns and residents, refining the clinical training which they started in the second year of the professional program.
Research in the department reflects the various disciplines represented and concentrates on problems relevant to the causes, diagnosis and treatment of problems affecting companion animals and horses. The department offers residencies in Small Animal Medicine, Small Animal Surgery, Neurology, Radiology, Primary Care, Equine Internal Medicine, Equine Surgery, Clinical Pharmacology and Anesthesia. We also offer MS and PhD degrees with a variety of emphases.
