Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital is a full service hospital in central Kentucky. We are offering a post-DVM residency program in equine surgery to provide advanced clinical training and specialization in the diagnosis and treatment of disease of horses under the supervision ofboard-certified specialists. The clinicians at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital are nationally and internationally recognized leaders in their respective fields. The three-year program will lead to a Certificate of Residency. No graduate studies are offered or required.
The objectives of the program are for the resident to:

2. Satisfy the criteria necessary to qualify for Board Certification, and to prepare the resident for successful completion of the ACVS Certification Examination;
3. Prepare for future career goals of teaching, clinical research, scientific publication, or specialized practice.
Clinical rotations: Program rotations are designed to insure development of clinical competence in a broad range of specialties. Residents rotate among the clinical services with the various primary clinicians. Specialty rotations in medicine, pathology, anesthesiology, and radiology will be arranged in order to fulfill the requirements of the ACVS residency guidelines during the 3-year program. The residents will participate in the emergency rotation including evenings, weekends and holidays as determined by the surgery clinicians. Clinical rotations facilitate development of clinical proficiency,
clinical skills, and knowledge of surgery through exposure to a wide variety of cases at all levels of complexity. This goal is facilitated by location of the hospital in central Kentucky that provides a high volume with a large variety of case material as well as a wide referral base. Case management is carried out with the guidance and collaboration of experienced clinicians. The degree of involvement of the resident in case management will be decided by the supervising clinician or surgery group as a whole. State-of-the-art equipment and facilities are available to develop technical expertise in diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
