Our Stuffed Animals Can Teach Us Too!

Meet Danielle Buchanan, Clinical Skills Laboratory Manager. The Clinical Skills Laboratory has been in existence for about 2 years. The purpose of this laboratory is to help both the DVM and veterinary nursing students to develop technical skills and competencies on models before they practice these skills on live animals. The lecture will focus on the development of the Clinical Skills Laboratory and some of the skills that are taught in the laboratory. Following the lecture, the audience will have the opportunity to try out some of the skills on the models.
