Learn and execute the handling of different personalities of cats. Learn about surgery in a private practice setting, and to get some hands on experience with direct supervision of doctor. Develop an understanding about how a practice operates, providing quality care but still generating an income.

We are a mixed animal practice that enjoys having students come and ride around with us. We start early in the morning with LA calls, typically herd checks and then go into the open call venue. The afternoons are reserved for team meetings, consulting, rounds here at the clinic, or SA if anyone is interested. We have been part of the ambulatory service at UW for over 20 years, and our clients are familiar with having students along. This is a great learning environment because the clients allow the students to actually do something!
Reproduction is still our main focus on the dairies, but we are seeing more consulting, nutrition, public health, and personel management. We have bull studs as clients, high end registered cattle, goat dairies, and everything between.
During the externship students will participate in all aspects of the veterinary department's activities, including routine, emergency, and preventive health care of the animal colleciton, maintaining health records, assisting the veterinary technicians with routine tests, and assisting in the care of hospitalized patients.
Students will begin by observing clinic protocol, move to participating in patient restraint and care. Cases will be discussed from examination through diagnostics, reassessments, treatments, and follow up. Students will also assist in surgeries.
Student will be matched with a board certified veterinarian in their areas of interest and travel with them througout the day. Our hospital is set up so that it is very easy to follow the most interesting cases.
