January 6, 2006

YakThe School of Veterinary Medicine invites interested members of the community to learn about veterinary medicine and animal health in other countries at one or more lectures offered in the course "Seminars in International Veterinary Medicine" (VME 494).

Speakers include veterinarians and graduates of the Master of Preventive Veterinary Medicine program, a professional degree course that prepares veterinarians to investigate and evaluate disease and production problems in animal populations. Graduates also may design, evaluate and implement disease control or other veterinary services programs for food animals or wildlife species.

The course meets on the Davis campus from January 10 to March 14, 2006 on Tuesdays, 12:10-1 PM. Lectures are held in Room 1309 of the Surge III building on Hutchison Drive.
