Faculty in the Department of Clinical Sciences provide classroom, clinical and field instruction encompassing the diagnosis, management, and prevention of diseases in individuals and herds of domestic and exotic animals and wildlife. Our educational missions include the instruction of veterinary and graduate students, and of graduate veterinarians including interns and residents, in the disciplines of medicine, surgery, radiology, theriogenology, anesthesiology, oncology, cardiology, dentistry, dermatology, ophthalmology, exotics, and epidemiology, to prepare them for careers in private practice, education, industry, and biomedical research. Participation in these fourth-year clinical rotations allows students to interact with clients and faculty specialists in a state-of-the-art teaching hospital setting.

The scholarly activity of this department includes a range of basic and applied research that addresses clinically important problems that may not come to the attention of investigators outside the clinical setting. This kind of research draws upon the interests and experiences—and the daily activities—of the clinical faculty and its trainees, and it makes use of the caseload and other unique resources of the VHC. Research, teaching, and clinical activities in this department occur together and are inseparable.
