Description of Elective Experience:

The purpose of the ASPCA Forensic Veterinary Medicine Externship Program is to provide third and fourth year veterinary students and veterinary internship and residency candidates with an opportunity to observe veterinary forensic medicine and the veterinary role in the management of animal cruelty cases.  Prior to January 1, 2014 the majority of animal cruelty complaints in New York City were made to ASPCA Humane Law Enforcement.  As of January 1, 2014 all animal cruelty complaints in New York City go to the New York Police Department.  This is an historic change.  The largest urban police force (34,000 uniformed police officers) in the United States now responds to complaints of animal cruelty 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. In the first year of the partnership, nearly 425 animals were rescued by NYPD and brought to the ASPCA. In 2015, 701 animals were rescued by NYPD and brought to the ASPCA. In 2015, greater than 1,000 animals were rescued by NYPD and brought to the ASPCA. Because animals are so significantly integrated into our society it is appropriate and necessary for local police departments to be responding to complaints of animal abuse.  This will be a model for the country.

Equine Reproduction Concepts (ERC) offers a program whereby veterinary students are able to come to our facility and be exposed to various techniques and procedures dealing with stallion and mare reproductive management. Positions are available every year from March 1 through July 31 and are scheduled in 2, 4, or 6 week increments. Scheduling is structured with the intention that only a single participant is present at any one time in order to maximize theoretical and practical exposure.

The goal of this program is for participants to gain experience and a working knowledge of general and advanced equine reproductive management. Exposure will include reproductive management of mares utilizing palapation/ultrasonogrpahy, hormonal treatments, uterine infusions and lavages, cultures, cytologies and biopsies, artificial insemination with fresh, cooled and frozen semen, embryo recovery and transfer, and foaling. Stallion procedures consist of semen collection, evaluation, processing for immediate insemination, cooling, shipping, or freezing, reproductive evaluations, and stallion handling.

Participants will gain practical experience in palpation/ultrasonography, artificial insemination, semen collection, evaluation and processing for immediate insemination or cooling and stallion handling. Periodic sit-down sessions will occur whereby practitioners at ERC will discuss certain techniques and/or cases with the externs.

Desirable attributes of the participant: comfortable working with horses, basic understanding of reproductive physiology, desire to learn new reproductive techniques, work well with practitioners and staff.
