New graduate option, Clinical Sciences, pending assignment of graduate option code:

The College of Veterinary Medicine, in collaboration with partners in the Division of Health Sciences, has established a new interdisciplinary graduate program of Comparative Health Sciences. This program offers both MS and PhD degrees and focuses on health sciences graduate education and research at the whole animal level, but will be complementary to and supportive of existing programs at the molecular and cellular level. Students are encouraged to study topics that bridge two distinct areas of study in order to benefit from the interdisciplinary structure of the program. Administered by the Graduate School, this interdisciplinary program provides an opportunity for all units within the College of Veterinary Medicine to participate in graduate education and encourages the integration of several related areas of emphasis currently existing in other units. Students are required to complete a program core curriculum as well as an option-specific curriculum. The program's other transcript-visible option, Biomedical Sciences, is intended to accommodate students with advisors in the College of Veterinary Medicine.

The Clinical Sciences graduate option will reflect the unique program of dual clinical residents/graduate students. The purpose of this option is to educate veterinarians in the conduct of research in a specialty clinical environment, consistent with the overall goals of comparative veterinary medicine.

This option is available only to dual clinical residents/graduate students of the College of Veterinary Medicine, in conjunction with 2-, 3- or 4-year residencies in a veterinary specialty.

Select 6 credits of one of the following courses:
VMC 682. Topics in Internal Medicine (2–4)
VMC 684. Topics in Surgery (2–4) or other clinical specialty

Select 6 credits of one of the following courses:
VMC 632. Postgraduate Medicine (3–7)
VMC 634. Postgraduate Surgery (3–7) or other clinical specialty
