The Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) at Oklahoma State University, is offering a one-year clinical internship in companion animal (equine and canine) theriogenology to commence on or before June 15, 2024 through June 30, 2025.
The intent of the program is to provide a graduate veterinarian with the opportunity to gain greater experience in equine and small animal theriogenology in preparation for practice, admission into a clinical residency program, or advanced graduate studies. This program is devoted to participation in the theriogenology service of the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) Ranch and the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH).
The service rotation consists of assisting senior clinicians and residents in reproductive cases in equine, small animal and Ranch based food animal species. Technical skills and clinical judgment will be obtained through supervised case management, participation in research projects and attendance at rounds and seminars. Participation of at least one original research project is required. Graduation from an AVMA accredited college of veterinary medicine, or the holding of a certificate from the educational commission for foreign veterinary graduates is required for consideration.
The Theriogenology section at OSU is comprised of four Theriogenologists, holding board certification and/or Ph.Ds. We strive to offer a strong comparative program through a developing small animal caseload, a perennially busy equine caseload, and specialty practice food animal caseload and experiences. We have a long history of a strong client caseload in mare fertility and breeding management, also including assisted reproduction technologies such as transvaginal oocyte aspiration, ET, etc. In small animals we offer transcervical insemination, culture and biopsy services, semen analysis and freezing, as part of and in addition to our infertility, breeding, and whelping management program. Of note, resident herds of horses (mares and stallions) and cattle are kept at the OSU CVM Ranch for deep hands-on experience with breeding management, semen analysis and freezing, as well as teaching and research purposes.
