Equine Theriogenology Residency
The Veterinary Health Center at Kansas State University offers a two year Equine Theriogenology residency. Clinical and formal training will be provided by a board certified theriogenologist with experience in equine, food animal and small animal species. The equine service at the KSU VHC is supported by 5 board certified specialists and one emergency clinician. The program is designed to provide advanced clinical and academic training to prepare the resident for the American College of Theriogenologists board examination and for a career in academic or private referral practice. Enrollment in the graduate school and completion of a program leading to the Master of Science Degree is highly recommended.
The residency will have a major emphasis on equine reproduction. However, the resident will receive didactic or clinical training in food animal, camelid and small animal theriogenology in preparation for the certifying examination. By the end of the program, the resident is expected to demonstrate competency in clinical service, and gain experience in research and teaching. Clinical training in food animal theriogenology is supported by 1800 cases annually. The resident will participate in providing after-hours emergency theriogenology service with appropriate faculty support. The resident will attend and participate in conferences, rounds, journal clubs and other academic and continuing education activities.
The resident must be physically present for orientation on the first day of the program.
