Student Chapter of the Society for Theriogenology

Welcome to the KSU Student Chapter of the Society for Theriogenology!

Our goal is to provide students with educational opportunities related to animal reproduction. We are a member of the Society for Theriogenology. All students with the desire to learn about animal reproduction as it relates to veterinary medicine are encouraged to join—level of experience is of no importance. Our monthly meetings feature faculty and guest speakers knowledgeable on the subject of animal reproduction and reproductive technology.

We strive to provide interesting and active wet labs such as breeding soundness exams, ultrasound, and semen handling and collection where students can gain practical hands-on experience in techniques that are used every day in the veterinary profession. Come join us!
