Veterinary Clinical Sciences Visiting Program
The goal of the Visitor Program is to provide the visitor with an in-depth exposure to specialty areas in veterinary medicine. Visitor programs enrich our own clinical program and research labs, provide academic growth for visiting participants, and help other institutions meet specific programmatic needs. Visitors provide opportunities for collaboration and sharing of ideas in teaching, clinics, and research. Compliance with Ohio Law, state licensure requirements, and University liability insurance coverage limits or may prevent hands-on clinical experience, but visitors are encouraged to observe our faculty and students in all clinical activities, including patient exams, rounds, special procedures, and surgeries
