Summer Clinics

Document Type



Many of the veterinary colleges around the country have introduced recent changes in their curricula, designed to improve the quality of their training or to increase the number of students they are able to accept and graduate. One college, Texas A & M, has gone to a trimester system to provide year around training and shorten the period required for graduation. Another, Michigan State, accepts two classes per year and plans to increase the number of students it graduates in this fashion. Several others have gone to a program of summer clinics for a portion of the vacation period between the junior and senior year in order to provide more organized training in the clinical disciplines.
