Large animal health is an important part of Midwestern University’s educational platform. Food safety is a major focus of One Health, the integrated study of human and animal healthcare. As part of their curriculum, students from the College of Veterinary Medicine have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty and students from other University healthcare programs to maximize their skill in the service of large animal and production medicine.
The 70,000 square foot Midwestern University Equine and Bovine Center at the Midwestern University Animal Health Institute (AHI) is a center for veterinary education, research, large animal veterinary services, and pathology with hired faculty who are engaged in scientific discovery to benefit Arizona’s livestock producers and horse owners. Because Midwestern University is an educational institution, the University is able to provide veterinary services at an affordable price.
Veterinary students, under direct supervision of faculty, are involved with patient care, which adds tremendous value to the service as the brightest minds are contributing to the entire healthcare experience. Examples of services that are provided include lameness exams, elective surgery, acupuncture, dental surgery, digital radiography and ultrasound, endoscopy, animal reproduction services, and general medical care.
