Comparative Medicine Clerkships
These clinical services are available on a first come, first serve basis. Each is two weeks in duration, although longer time periods may be available. Students may participate in one, two, or three clinical services; however, each clerkship must be two weeks in duration, with the exception of the Zoological Medicine clerkship.
Students wishing to participate in the Zoological Medicine clerkship must first complete the two week clerkship in Avian, Exotic and Wildlife Medicine at Tennessee. Rotations begin at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday and finish on a Monday two weeks later.
Both Zoological Medicine and Avian, Exotic and Wildlife Medicine share an evening and weekend emergency service.
The rotation in Laboratory Animal Medicine offers hands-on experience with all facets of research animal care, including clinical and surgical techniques, preventive medicine, record keeping, protocol review, and compliance issues.
