Colorado State University has two residency positions in Emergency/Critical Care medicine. These are three year programs offset so that there is always one senior resident. Positions are offered through the American Association of Veterinary Clinicians Veterinary Internship and Residency Matching Program. The program starts July 1st in years a third-year resident has completed the program. Any questions regarding this residency can be directed to program mentors Dr. Tim Hackett or Dr. Vicki Campbell.
The objective of the three-year combined residency program is to provide advanced training in veterinary emergency and critical care medicine. The residency is designed to meet training requirements for certification in the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (ACVECC). All residents must be accepted and enrolled in the Graduate School. Graduate work leading to a Master of Science degree in Clinical Sciences will be completed during the residency.
The goals of the program are to develop a resident with a broad knowledge of emergency medicine, critical care and related disciplines. The training is obtained through patient care, teaching rounds, seminars, graduate courses and clinical research. In the majority of cases, residents will assume primary case responsibility with a senior clinician as advisor.
The resident must conduct one research project during the residency program. The research may be either a clinical or basic science project. The research proposal must be approved by the resident's committee and be submitted to a funding agency by June 30th of the first year of the residency program, or sooner if required by the funding agency.
The resident must prepare and submit three papers for publication in a refereed journal prior to graduation. These papers must be approved by the graduate/resident committee and submitted for publication according to the following schedule:
Two of the three papers must have been accepted for publication in a refereed journal 60 days before the oral examination.
The resident may participate in research projects and the preparation of papers for publication in addition to those necessary to meet the requirements of the residency program IF THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS ARE MET:
During the first year and second year of the program the resident is required to take the Postgraduate Medicine Courses (VS 701-704). Postgraduate Medicine deals with various topics in veterinary internal medicine and related disciplines. The course stresses fundamental and recent developments in clinical medicine. The course presumes an advanced level of knowledge.
During the first, second and third years the resident is required to enroll for the departmental seminar. Departmental seminar involves the presentation of seminars by all residents and graduate students in the Department of Clinical Sciences to give the results of their research projects.
Additional courses in the Department of Clinical Sciences and other academic departments are selected with the approval of the resident's graduate committee. During the three year residency/master's program the student will be required to register for a total of 48 credit hours of course work.
The resident will be encouraged to sit for the ACVECC Boards at the end of the third year of the residency program.
Annual renewal of the residency program is contingent upon satisfactorily meeting the academic requirements of the Graduate School and all of the other requirements set forth in this document.
