Coming Soon

Spring 2010

Equine Opthomology Wetlab - Monday, January 18th at 4:30pm in the Anatomy Lab.

Sign-up is on a first come-first serve basis. The sign-up will be posted on the SCAAEP bulletin board at 12:15 Tuesday and it will be up until Wednesday at 12:30. 

About the lab:

Using equine cadaver heads, students will be able to practice common techniques in equine ophthalmology with guidance from ophthalmology clinicians and residents. Dr. McMullen will explain and demonstrate the techniques on equine cadaver heads. Students will then be able to practice the techniques in groups of 3-4 per cadaver head. 

Procedures will include retrobulbar blocks, local eyelid blocks, subconjunctival injection & aqueous paracentesis, and subpalpebral lavage catheter (SPLs) placement.  Each year has a certain number of spots (10 third years, 6 second years, 4 first years) and if any class does not fill its quota, the remaining spots will be filled with students on the Alternate List.

EVERYONE will be notificed by Friday, January 15th whether they are “in” the lab or on the alternate list.

Equine Dentistry Wetlab: Tuesday January 19th, 2010 starting at 6:00 pm

This wetlab will focus on slightly more advanced dentistry techniques and is sort of an extension of the Equine Dentistry selective taught by Dr. Gerard; therefore, priority will be given to those students who have already completed this selective.

The sign up sheet will be going around classes in the next few days.

Fall 2009

Equine Joint Injection Lecture and Wetlab - September 30th, 2008 starting at 5:00 pm

The lecture on "Distal Limb Anatomy and Joint Injection in the Equine" will be given by Dr. Liara Gonzalez who is a LA surgical resident here at the NCSU CVM.

The join injection wetlab will follow the lecture, but because of the limited number of limbs only 20 students can attend.
The list of participants can be found here.

Equine Handling Wetlab - October

Dr. Liara Gonzalez will demonstrate proper techniques for the safe handling of horses in a veterinary capacity.
