Department of Clinical Sciences

Dedicated to excellence in educating and training veterinarians and comparative biomedical scientists, furthering health care and wellness through discovery and clinical research.

Equine Medicine

Teaching of future equine veterinarians and specialists plays a large role in this department’s efforts at NC State Veterinary Medicine. The equine clinical sciences program encompasses clinical service, research, and teaching. Clinical service is related to work in the NC State Veterinary Hospital for referring veterinarians and their clients or can occur in the hospital of a requesting veterinarian.

Research involves examining hospital data retrospectively or prospectively or doing basic studies. Teaching includes  lecturing and working with veterinary students in the clinics, working with house officers and post-graduate students, or developing training programs in the Equine Hospital or in out-reach programs for practicing veterinarians.

The Equine Health Program at NC State’s College of Veterinary Medicine brings together horse owners, veterinarians, and college faculty on the issues, research, and advancements concerning horse health in North Carolina and beyond.


Support the Equine Health Program

NC State Veterinary Medicine’s Equine Health Program (EHP) strives to educate members of the horse industry, bring discoveries to practice that enhance the health and performance of horses in North Carolina, and train the next generation of equine veterinary clinicians, teachers, and researchers.

Gifts to the Equine Health Program are used to support these activities by funding training expenses for residents, interns, and veterinary students; providing seed funding for research projects; and offering matching funds to obtain state of the art equipment and technology for the Veterinary Hospital, research laboratories, and educational programs.

You can support the work of future equine veterinarians with a tax-deductible donation (please chose “other” and indicate the name “Equine Health Program” in your gift).
