Referring Veterinarians

Referring Veterinarians

Case referrals from private practitioners are a major part of our caseload and provide the foundation for our DVM resident and training programs. Our faculty and residents have access to fully staffed, state-of-the-art laboratories, diagnostic imaging resources and therapeutic modalities, as well as the latest research findings in veterinary medicine. We are anxious to share our most current knowledge and resources with the referral community, and are committed to building a strong relationship with veterinarians through timely and thorough information about their patients seen at the VMTH.

About VMACS Web Access

Dear Colleague:
Thank you for being an active partner with us in providing students with excellent case material through the referral process. We greatly value your referrals, and we are striving to make the referral process as easy as possible.

Through online web access you can select from a list of cases (visits) that you have formally referred to us, as well as cases for which you were identified by the client as their local veterinarian. These visits are displayed in reverse chronological order (i.e., most recent first) with modest identifying information associated (patient name, client name, date of visit, etc.). If you select a visit which has not been finalized yet, only the demographic information will be displayed (to include the primary clinician on the case). If you select a visit that has been finalized you will be able to view the following information:

  • presenting complaint
  • pertinent history
  • physical exam findings
  • inter-service consultations
  • problems noted
  • medical and surgical procedures performed
  • laboratory results
  • imaging reports
  • pharmacy dispensations
  • pathological diagnoses
  • clinical diagnoses
  • plans and progress notes
  • comments
  • discharge summary
  • discharge instructions

Again, we thank you for being a partner with us in the education of your future colleagues.
