Minnesota just built a new equine center, but I've heard that it's caused some faculty problems ($ allocated to building rather than salaries), not sure if that's been resolved yet. Tufts has a decent equine program, but a relatively low large animal caseload (as told by the admissions' rep during my pre-Internet.

I've heard good things about Edinburgh (Scotland) and their equine caseload. I worked at the VH for a year and a half and it turned me off vet school......

Totally understand if you don't want to though. As far as equine schools, I'd also say Penn and Cornell for sure. I feel like I've also heard good things about Davis, CSU, Georgia and K-State for equine as well.

Students are welcome to go down to the barn, which is two buildings over from where we have classes, and observe anytime, and there is a colic team and foal team where you get on call shifts and get to go watch them work up cases or sit with the foals. In addition, there is a Veterinary Emergency Response Team where you learn how to deal with rescues of all kinds, including airlifting horses (I think Pomona2006 has been up in a helicopter on a training run, she could tell you more about that).

Dr. Median (also very nice and approachable) is the state's go-to guy for airlifting horses; he did after all invent the Anderson Sling!OK, I'm a little biased towards my school. Iowa recently built brand-new large animal facilities and has a decent caseload.

They don't have the aqua-treadmill, indoor arena and force plate gait analysis system that Minnesota has, but they have a larger caseload, which is more important, IMO. Michigan was another that I applied to; I know the state has been hit especially hard by the economy, so I don't know what their current caseload is like, but before that the horse industry was growing quickly and I had heard good things about their equine program.

You'll get a good, solid education in equine medicine at most (if not ALL) US schools (plus several in other countries) so really... Also, you might want to check out the University of Florida, which I've also heard (from an equine internal medicine vet) is an excellent school.

I'd actually be put off as a student if some PRE- vet was being super judgmental of me when I'm simply trying to learn). I grew up never having touched a horse and don't really plan on being BFFs with them in the future either, but that does not mean I won't make a great small/exotic animal vet or a veterinary researcher (with some book knowledge on horses and food animals).

I think the beauty of vet school is that it's an opportunity for everyone to consider their vast career potentials and try something new if they so desire. I'm confident that if even I really wanted to become an equine vet, I would be able to find opportunities at CSU to become prepared to practice.

I've never heard of the term...like seriously, ever... and I work in the VH (albeit in a clinical research lab). ... but you'd think they'd try to push it onto first-years during orientation when the hospital director comes and has the opportunity to indoctrinate students if they really wanted to.

They have a whole separate campus (~3 miles down the road) full of horses that they lease from some guy in Texas for it. I'm not sure if the campus is exclusively there for equine reproduction, but I went for a mare AI wet lab and it was an amazing experience.

So yeah, if there's a very specific thing that one school is known for that you really want to get involved in (like vet forensics in FL?) Another thing you may want to consider is whether the equine center is a part of campus.

Penn is in downtown Philly, so the equine center is a good 45-min drive west. It's smack in the middle of some wealthy horse country, hence the high caseload, but you may have some trouble getting to it.

I shadowed at the large animal center for a week a while ago and loved its location (I live halfway between the large animal center and main campus), but the distance may limit student opportunities. Any Penn students want to chime in on their experience with the separation from campus? I'm really excited that Edinburgh is condensing their campus outside the city, but I'm curious how that will affect the caseload.

At VA Tech, most of the action is at the Equine Medical Center, which is at the opposite end of the state more than 4 hours away. FWIW, a friend who did vet school at VA Tech and a residency (equine internal medicine) at Davis felt pretty strongly that the students at Davis were much better prepared to go out in to practice in terms of hands-on experience and exposure to a higher caseload.

I mean, which vet school doesn't have opportunities for interested students to get involved or have foal watch/foaling teams? I've never heard of the term...like seriously, ever... and I work in the VH (albeit in a clinical research lab).

I suspect that wherever I end up in the Fall, I may be accidentally calling all my SDN friends by the screen names I've associated with them for so long. I know we were told about it in the PRE- vet club last year...that they wanted the hospital to be called VMC from now on.

I agree with you, Tinkerbell, that one shouldn't form a strong opinion about the VH (VMC be damned! ) I personally had positive encounters with vet students when I worked there, but even if there had been some snarky ones, they're only there temporarily, so no biggie.

And, like you said, for heaven's sake, they are there to LEARN, and not everyone has had experience with the variety of species one encounters at a teaching hospital. If equine retro were my area of interest, I would have CSU very high on my list.

It's an amazing program out there! I know plenty of horses that went through there and the vets did a great job. Another thing you may want to consider is whether the equine center is a part of campus.

Of course if the equine center was part of the main campus it would be nice, but honestly it doesn't seem to matter all that much. The 1st 2.5 years during didactic teaching most of the time is spent in classroom on the main campus in filly.

Horse lovers do have wet labs frequently out at New Bolton Center (NBC) on the weekends. For clinical, those who are going to do Large Animal generally live out at NBC (I believe they can get free apartments out there as well) and only infrequently have to come to the main campus so it works out fairly well.

When I was rotating through equine in fourth year, we had many only a couple patients a day. Now admittedly, I'm on the other side of things (crops lol) but from the number of horses we get (at least one a day) I imagine the caseload is quite high.

For clinical, those who are going to do Large Animal generally live out at NBC (I believe they can get free apartments out there as well) and only infrequently have to come to the main campus so it works out fairly well. Penn's great facilities and high case load are because it is not in the city.

When you do rotations for longer periods during clinical you have the option of staying in apartments on the new Bolton campus for free. IMO all the positive things about our LA center make up for driving farther.

I have participated in pregnancy checks, joint injections, gait analysis, rads, So (and remember, I am not in equine focus area.... I just think it's interesting to learn something I've never done before.) Handling, phys exam, injections, control, hoof testing, etc.

Also, in first year anatomy you have to learn palpation of anatomical landmarks on a live horse and it is part of our practical testing. I know folks are saying it does't matter if you have to drive awhile....but I have to imagine that it's hard to drive to those hospitals to see the really fascinating case that just came in, or to get there at the drop of a hat if you are on colic team and it's your night to be on call, or that you can't pop down the So suite to observe if you get out of class early.

I have never heard anyone complain about Mizzou's equine caseload, and we generally always have a good number of cases when I'm working in the ICU (especially in summer, less so in the winter). In that way, you can tailor the program to be heavily equine (or anything else) oriented, which I think is pretty neat.

Although, of course that means you're not right there with the horses, but I do think that's a nice alternative to getting up early and heading out there on a cold, winter Friday morning Actually, the hospital itself is attached, so there isn't any need to head outside in the cold (unless you are helping with gait analysis, etc) but even then, I have yet to wear more than a sweatshirt and some light gloves to do those sorts of things.

Admittedly, to work with the CVM's horses, you would have to go to the horse barn or the fields; again, the 2-min walk to the barns isn't bad, and the farthest turn out pasture is a comfortably slow 7 min walk. To give an idea of this context, when you sit in our cafeteria, right outside is a deck for eating (about wide enough for a table with four seats), then a green area about the same size, then a knee wall, then 2 paddocks, then the horse barn.

Even the unloading area is inside with large doors that are kept closed most of the time. First year lockers are just opposite of the unloading area. I think the real advantage of having the LA hospital attached to the vet school....we don't have to worry about going outside, but if rounds presented talk about inflammation and credits in the stifle, here you can actually feel it.

I have been told it is fairly unique for a vet school to have all its large animal stuff on campus; our school is in a city, but surrounded by pastureland with sheep, goats, cows, pigs, chickens, and horses, all of which are part of a farm system that is primarily self-supporting. I think the real advantage of having the LA hospital attached to the vet school....we don't have to worry about going outside, but if rounds presented talk about inflammation and credits in the stifle, here you can actually feel it.

I think what glabella means is that if you want to learn more about it one morning, but are too lazy to go there, you have the option of the teleconference. Most of my LA friends have consistent carpools set up and I don't hear them complaining much about the drive.

I responded to a poster's question with the caveat that of course it would be more convenient if the LA and SA were together but it works out fine otherwise. NBC is an over 600 acre campus with 70+ buildings devoted mainly to horses.

Penn has 7000 horses a year treated at NBC and 9 surgeries a day. My apologies... I just thought with an equine unit farther away, it would be difficult to get out there on a daily basis.

It wasn't argumentative...and I noted several times that it is an outside perspective looking in, and I am basing my comments on the fact that as a non-equine focus, I get to put my hands on horses far more often (nearly daily if I wanted) than I do my own focus, simply due to offsite locations. Hence, why I wasn't comparing caseload (just sharing it because I didn't find it readily available in the CSU CVM info)...just saying that I do believe there is something very nice about having the school intact.

I'm amazed that I can actually write that I don't know how important that is for horse folks, and multiple individuals will jump down my throat that I have no idea what I am talking about. My apologies to the Penn-we's for apparently stepping on toes for stating that I personally feel there is some advantage to having an equine unit on campus.

I wish our zoo med stuff was on campus, but I am apparently in a bizarre minority. If you want to know about caseloads, http://www.virmp.org/ is a good place to look -- just pick some sort of large animal internship/residency at the school you're curious about, and it will give you the numbers. For example, Texas A&M sees ~7100 LA cases per year, about 70% of which is equine, with 3-5 surgeries per day.

Most schools also have this info on their websites, but a lot of times you have to look at internships/residencies to get the numbers, rather than the DVD applicants section. Finally, at the end you said “I'm not an equine focus so I don't know how important it is to touch/feel/hear...” Obviously, it is IMT to touch/feel/hear things.

Although having the campus far away is a huge drawback, the benefit is that New Bolton is amazing, and we have a great caseload. Also, we have lots of wet abs through the various student clubs, and they frequently are held out at NBC.

However, being a New-Englander through and through, I don't know what I would do with myself surrounded by cowboy boots, navicular-prone Quarter Horses, and country music I probably would have loved it lol! Like someone said, it doesn't really matter where you go since you can supplement your education with externships and rotations at other schools.

The things to consider are definitely the hospitals' caseload as that will determine how much you get to see and do as a 4th year. I chose Penn over RCM primarily bc of caseload, but I am sure I could have gotten just as good an education there as I am getting here.

I primarily want to do Equine, but am not closed off to the idea of doing mixed larger animal. My top three schools for Equine include Penn, RCM and OSU.

That being said, the majority of cases you will see are horses, but the recession has definitely taken a toll on the caseload in general. I don't mean to turn you off, because as someone else said, we have the horse center in Leesburg 4 hours away so you can get the experience, it is mostly what you make out of it as a student.
