own a mixed animal practice (85% companion) in Springfield Ohio that I
started in 1982. I will provide the student with the opportunity to be
involved in clinics, surgery, radiography, and farm visits. I intend to
give my extern a snapshot of what I do every day, and how I utilize my
staff to help me do it.
I mentioned above, I own a mixed animal practice, with the emphasis on
companion animals. I would like the student to see patients with my supervision
in the office, assist me in surgery,
assist in treatments, assist on farm calls, and basically see how I run
received my DVM from Ohio State in 1980. I am a solo practitioner. I
have 32 years experience in mixed practice, but no specialty degrees
I have an assortment of textbooks in the hospital, and access to the internet there.
would like student to see patients with my supervision. I also want student to
help me in surgery and on farm visits. I want student to decide the course
of action for cases, and to discuss them with me before proceeding. I
realize student does not yet have DVM degree, but I wish to allow student to
begin developing own style of history taking, and developing a
course of action for cases, with my guidance.
would like student to be present 9 to 10 hours on MTRF, 5 hours on
Wednesday, and 4 hours on Saturday. That would be about 48 hours.
