School Welcomes Equine Reproductive Specialist
July 2, 2012
Ghislaine Dujovne, DVM, MS, DACT, has joined the Department of Population Health and Reproduction as an associate staff veterinarian and clinical professor in equine reproduction, effective July 1, 2012.
Dr. Dujovne obtained her DVM from the University of Chile College of Veterinary Sciences in 2004 and remained there to obtain her Diploma in Animal Reproduction with an equine emphasis. She worked in private general practice and as a reproductive consultant to numerous Thoroughbred breeding farms before she began a residency in theriogenology (equine reproduction) at Auburn University in 2008. Dr. Dujovne completed her residency and Master of Science degree (studying the use of etonogestrel implantation for estrogen suppression in mares) in 2011, and remained at Auburn gaining experience as a clinical reproduction instructor until coming to UC Davis. She is a diplomate of the American College of Theriogenologists.
Dr. Dujovne's clinical interests are varied. In addition to her specialization in equine reproduction, she will be contributing to the school’s growth in clinical reproduction in other species, including South American camelids (alpacas, llamas), small ruminants and small animals. She will teach reproduction in the first three years of the curriculum and provide clinical training for fourth-year students while seeing patients at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital and the Center for Equine Health.
