Description of Elective Experience:

An advanced training program for prospective dairy veterinarians held at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine.

Our vision of the Summer Dairy Institute is to accelerate and augment the ability of motivated veterinary students and new veterinarians to contribute to the modern dairy industry while fostering development of professional networks.

The mission is to provide a concentrated 4-week course of the highest quality to a select group of professionals whose career objective is to enhance the well-being of dairy cattle such that they contribute to efficient, profitable, and environmentally sound production of safe food.

Selected participants will convene in New York for an intensive 4-week course with authorities at the forefront of their fields. They offer up-to-the-minute professional information on subjects such as Reproduction, Nutrition, Dairy Facilities, Dairy Record Systems, Milk Quality/Udder Health, Biosecurity, Public Health and Regulatory Considerations, and Financial Decision Making.

Not only will future leaders in the profession be exposed to a unique, relevant, and modern curriculum, they will also have the opportunity to interact with one another and faculty to permit establishment of friendships and networks of colleagues that will serve the profession and industry well for decades. Participants in this program will be better prepared to enter modern veterinary practice and support industries than conventional new graduates. For recent graduates, it is expected that they will bring immediate value to their employers.

Program faculty will be drawn from academia industry, government, and private practices.

The CEEZAD BSL-3 Training/Transboundary Animal Diseases Summer Program is designed to introduce graduate, DVM and upper-level undergraduate students to high-containment training and to provide current practical and scientific information on select high consequence transboundary and zoonotic diseases. In addition, this program also provides insight into challenges associated with the current COVID-19 pandemic and into methodologies, tools and partnerships that could help us better respond to future pandemics.

Our goal at PETS Clinic is to introduce 4th-year students to high-volume spay/neuter and non-profit veterinary medicine. Students will gain experience in spay/neuter surgeries enabling them to safely and efficiently perform large numbers. The value of this skill set extends beyond spay/neuter clinics and shelter medicine. As a full-service clinic, students will get hands-on experience in surgeries outside of spay/neuter along with dentals, diagnostics, emergencies, and orthopedics. Students will also have an opportunity to practice in a shelter setting if desired. We are an incredibly busy clinic. We perform around 40 spay/neuters daily and see approximately 80 pets each day for general wellness, injury, and illness. Our clinic prides itself on providing care to pets that may not otherwise receive it. We practice incremental care on a daily basis and feel exposing students to this method of treatment is crucial to ensuring all pets receive the veterinary care they deserve.
