Description

 Participation in case management of patients with reproductive diseases or those admitted for elective breeding management (including those seeking assisted reproductive techniques such as embryo or semen freezing, etc) or breeding soundness evaluations. The THERM service works with all species with the vast majority of clinical cases involving bovine, equine and canine species. Activities may involve field trips to local farms, OSU Finley farm and OSU Marysville clinic. At the end of rotation, the student should have an understanding of common reproductive diseases and fertility problems afflicting small and large animals. At least 2 hours of seminars or discussions of current therapy in theriogenology will take place once weekly for the duration of the rotation. The student will be required to assist the therio clinician on duty for any occasional emergency occurring after hours (including weekends and holidays). Dr. Marco Da Silva, supervisor.

Responsibilities

The student will be required to assist the therio clinician on duty for any occasional emergency that occurs after hours (including weekends and holidays). SOAPs for in-patients should be done by 8 am. As we may alternate seeing small and large animal patients, a white lab coat and pair of clean coveralls should be available every day. @-week rotations will be available for the elective quarter and Trimester 1.

Student supervision

8 hours per week day. Additional contact/supervision as deemed necessary on a case-by-case basis.
