Animal Medical Center
As a teaching hospital, this facility is managed by staff and faculty who perform regular examination and treatment of animals reared in the University Field Center, as well as those brought in from various outlying communities. As such, it provides an excellent practical/hands-on clinical training ground for students and researchers of the School of Veterinary Medicine. Students and research trainees are taught how to perform animal examination/evaluation, including diagnosis and treatment. Clinical findings and research related information are presented and discussed during clinical seminars. Compared to similar facilities in other universities, more large animals, such as cattle and horses, are treated in this hospital. Comparative figures on animal types treated in the University Hospital are shown below.
