Narratives
Approach & Goals to Teaching

9 student awards for teaching, 1 college award (VMRCVM), 1 university award (VMRCVM) and a Norden Distinguished teaching award (OSU)
Development of the Program at the OSU Large Animal Services Facility Production of over 800 pages of notes
Presentation at over 90 local, state, regional and national forums

Continue to develop the curriculum at Marysville, find ways to utilize computer driven teaching and encourage the student to think on their feet.
Evaluation of Teaching
Student evaluations occur at the end of each rotation, They are voluntary and therefore variable in response numbers from rotation to rotation.
Focus of Research
Wound Management in Horse
Field sedation and anesthesia in large animals Fluid therapy
Practice management

Field trial currently at over 1500 cases using Detomidine as a stand alone drug. A study that has been ongoing since March of 2003. Due to the potential danger involved in working with horses and the novice student involvement , it has become a keen interest of mine. The opportunity to get involved with this project with Pfizer has fueled the desire and knowledge. The spin off from this project is has given me a renewed focus in clinical research. The project has generated a significant amount of information, much of which has already been developed into a technical bulletin for distribution by the company. I have had the opportunity to present this information at 30 different venues throughout the country in the last 4 years and deliver it via teleconference approximately 30 times. The impact of this project has been far reaching and extremely useful to the practitioner. That is what makes me the proudest of this project.

Continuing Education / Extension Courses Taught

Additional extension efforts I have accomplished in the last 4 years: 35 teleconferences held for Pfizer to deliver research results on the use of Detomidine to practitioners and practice groups.
