This two-year residency program at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine (UFCVM) will provide advanced clinical training focused on canine reproduction, with comparative species incorporated to a lesser degree. This will include clinical proficiency in male and female pre-breeding genetic and general health soundness evaluations, breeding management, pregnancy diagnosis and monitoring, male and female disease diagnosis and treatment, and management of dystocia. The goal of the small animal reproductive service is to provide multi-faceted reproduction services, for breeders of purpose-bred dogs, as well as services for the general public. The comparative portion of the residency will include clinical training in secondary areas, including equine and ruminant (large and small) clinical veterinary reproduction. Collaborative opportunities for comparative genetics training are available at UF in equine genetics research and externally with a service dog organization.
The resident will be provided 25% of time off clinic duty for professional development, and 50% off after-hours call time. The professional development time will be spent with the clinical investigation, complementary clinical rotations, continuing education, and similar endeavors. Attendance at a resident research seminar and completion of a resident research project and submission with the publication of a manuscript to a refereed journal is required. The residency will provide the opportunity to prepare for successful completion of the American College of Theriogenology (ACT) certifying examination.
An elaborate benefit package is provided to each resident. This employer-paid package includes a multitude of coverages including; medical, dental, vision, life, accidental death & dismemberment, disability, pet, legal, cancer, long-term disability, and accident (out of pocket) insurance. With most of the plans, there is also the option to include family members on the coverage at no extra cost to the resident. If a resident suffers a work-related injury, the resident is generally covered under the worker's compensation program of the University provided the resident complies with the requirements of the worker's compensation program.
Clinical faculty directly responsible for the program are currently: Audrey A. Kelleman, DVM, DACT, Malgorzata Pozor, DVM, PhD, DACT, and Klibs N. A. Galvão, DVM, PhD, DACT, DACVPM.
