2015 - 2016 Schedule

Participants will meet in the Edwards building, Room R358 every Tuesday and Thursday from 12:00 to 1:20. Class participants will receive a letter grade based on attendance, class participation, and the final examination score.

Classes will consist of discussion of assigned topics and the study guide questions followed by slide shows. Weekly assignments may be supplemented by video review, "handouts" from Dr. Green and journal club-type discussion of equine scientific papers. The emphasis of this course will be on a "problem-oriented" approach to horse medicine. The objective is to provide the class participants with exposure to common equine veterinary medical problems. Dr. Green's office hours are on Monday 1:30-2:00 pm or by appointment.
