UC Davis is offering a Theriogenology Residency with Equine emphasis. The 2 year clinical program in comparative theriogenology is designed to provide advanced clinical training involving the reproductive system, experience in clinical teaching, exposure to research techniques and the opportunity to conduct clinically oriented research. The training will focus on clinical as well as basic physiological aspects of domestic animal reproduction to strengthen the individual's preparation for board certification. The program emphasizes breeding management of the horse, with exposure to food animal and small animal reproduction, clinical diagnosis and treatment of the sub-fertile and infertile animal, and assisted reproductive techniques relevant to the discipline. Graduates should be well prepared for clinical academic appointments or for specialty practices.
Minimum qualifications include graduation from an accredited school of veterinary medicine and a one-year internship or equivalent practice experience. The selection of residents is made on the basis of academic achievement, career objectives, letters of recommendation, interpersonal skills, clinical skills, and pertinent experience.
