Description of Elective Experience:

Unique institution, as student would be immersed in the two dairy facilities and two calf ranches that Holsum operates. Holsum employs three veterinarians, student would predominantly interact with Dr Stollen (the staff veterinarian), the other vets are responsible for primarily managerial projects.

Veterinarians work on farm with equipment at each site as needed, so a non-traditional dairy production medicine externship. The student would participate in herd checks for the dairies (Mon 5:30AM-NOON) and heifer checks (Tues 6:45-10AM), the rest of the week would be divided up into time spent working with herdsmen in the hospital and maternity areas, opportunities to treat calves, observe hoof trimmers, etc. based on student interest. Students are included on any emergency work or surgical procedures. In the past this has included obstetrical cases (with fetotomy/caesarians as needed), displaced abomasum correction (both roll and toggle and surgical management), umbilical hernia resection, fracture management, enucleation and laceration repairs. Because we are a working dairy there is variability in the presentation of said procedures. 

We regularly have team meetings on the dairies and students are welcome to come and observe our interactions with herdsmen, milkers, and upper management staff. We have bilingual translation for training, feedback and meetings. Any students looking to practice Spanish are especially welcome and employees are happy to share their cultural experience.

This externship takes place in the southern part of Ecuador, a city called Loja. This is one of the top Universities and one of the few that offer Veterinary Medicine throughout the whole country. The faculty, staff and students are great with hands on learning and teaching, plus a wide variety of animal practice (small, large and exotics). UNL has their own farm in the northern parts of the city, where you will see first hand production of milk, yogurt, cheese, marmalades, ham and sausages, an experience that is once in a lifetime. In the humble teaching hospital you will learn to be efficient and effective with resources around you. Lastly, the Labs are open to those interested in pathology, histopathology and cytology; with diseases and slides only seen in remote parts of the world.
