The Caine Center maintains a highly-rated and effective veterinary medicine teaching program. This success has
been largely due to the selection of teaching-oriented faculty with a clinical approach to problem solving. The food
animal production medicine rotation includes: 1) clinical skills and individual animal medicine, 2) internal medicine,
with discussion in bacteriology, virology, fluid therapy, nutrition, and food animal production medicine and record
keeping, 3) necropsy, and 4) disease investigation studies with beef cattle, dairy cattle and small ruminants.
Specialty blocks include general food animal medicine, dairy production medicine, reproduction/biotechnology,
cow/calf management, feedlot medicine, sheep/lambing management, and small ruminant clinical medicine.
Caine Center personnel contribute to the AVS Department undergraduate program by providing summer internship
opportunities that are specially designed for pre-veterinary students. On-campus faculty members serve as advisors
for pre-veterinary students. Caine Center faculty members also serve on the UI Graduate faculty and are active in the
AVS Department graduate student programs.
The facilities and programs at the Caine Center present an outstanding opportunity to offer continuing education
programs for veterinarians and livestock producers, particularly in southern Idaho.

invite you for a learning experience you will never forget!
After the Washington-Idaho-Montana-Utah (WIMU) Veterinary Medicine Program students have selected their
senior-year rotations, there may be limited spaces available in some rotations for out-of-program senior veterinary
students. If you are interested in any of our food animal rotations, please contact the Caine Center by email:
