Subject Title
Medical Clinics II and Diseases

Subject Description
This second Medical Clinics course is a continuation of MED 101, and as such consists of a practical and theoretical component. The practical portion is designed to give you the basics in small and large animal procedures so that you will feel comfortable assisting with and performing basic therapeutic procedures and injections. The lecture portion continues with Animal Husbandry from MED101 and introduces the diseases and preventative programs for their control. Opportunities for guided practice will be provided for both small and large animals, but proficiency of the skills will not likely be achieved until third and fourth semester where you will have further opportunities to practice and be evaluated on them at that time. This segment also emphasizes animal care and responsibilities.
