Program Description The Department of Clinical Sciences at Colorado State University offers a 3-year clinical residency in Equine Theriogenology that will start on July 15, 2021 and end on June 30, 2024. The goals of the program are to provide the candidate with an opportunity to develop significant clinical expertise in all areas of equine reproduction and to prepare residents for a future career in academic or specialty private practice. Residents are expected to be active participants in ongoing programs in clinical equine reproduction, teaching, continuing education, and research. The program will have 3 residents with a new resident starting every July 15. Consequently, at any given time there should be a third year, a second year and a first year Equine Theriogenology resident. The residency program will be based at the Equine Reproduction Laboratory on the Foothills Campus of Colorado State University. The home department for the residency is the Department of Clinical Sciences, which is based at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, located on the South Campus of Colorado State University.
