Prospective Students

The goal of this program is to train future dairy veterinarians in production medicine. It is designed to provide intense immersion in an array of subjects that will be essential for dairy veterinarians in the future.  Course experiences are supplemented by an extensive, multi-module web learning and reference resource that is available to students both during and after the program.  Although students may have variable experience in dairy production medicine coming into the rotation, they are expected to have a strong interest in and commitment to dairy practice.  This is a for-credit rotation and students will be evaluated based on their participation and academic performance. 

As this is not a clinical (sick cow) rotation, students with limited clinical skills in dairy veterinary medicine should not forfeit all other opportunities for clinical education in favor of this program 

 

2015 - 2016 Program Dates:

Aug. 3- Aug. 28 and Sept. 28 - Oct. 23, 2015

 

Currently Accepting Applications for 2015-2016 Course:

We are now accepting applications for the 2015-2016 school year. Although we are working to raise funds from the private sector to underwrite most of the program costs, we still expect that students will need to contribute up to $3,000 for their enrollment. If needed, students are encouraged to seek scholarship or grant assistance from sources like the AABP or from their own college. To apply for this course, please submit your resume, a 1-page letter of interest detailing your experience and interest in dairy production medicine, and a letter of reference from a faculty member to:
