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
