This session provides the participants with an introductory understanding of numerous fields of veterinary medicine beyond the traditional role of a veterinarian with direct animal contact.
These sessions will introduce Explorers to veterinary medicine specialties that are less familiar to most people, including avian and fish medicine.
** SAFETY NOTICE**
Before Explorers enter a working environment, review the hazards and risks faced in veterinary medicine; the precautions that are taken to prevent injury, illness, and disease transmission to caregivers and other animals; and the use of appropriate controls. Explorers should be provided appropriate training and personal protective equipment (PPE) before entering the working environment. Please consider whether they may need to be excluded from certain procedures, areas, or exams (e.g., X-rays or clinical laboratory procedures), and make appropriate safety accommodations. Due to the known hazards of ionizing radiation (X-rays), Explorers may not participate in the taking of radiographs. Trained laboratory technicians or their equivalent must be in immediate attendance whenever any clinical laboratory procedures are being carried out.
This session provides participants with an introductory understanding of various ancillary diagnostic support fields that a veterinarian uses in providing animal health care. Radiology techniques, including x-ray and ultrasound, and clinical laboratory testing are just a few of the “tools” used by veterinarians to help diagnose and treat their patients that will be explored in this session.
