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 and a practical approach to clinical problem solving.
The food animal production medicine rotation includes: 1) clinical skills and individual animal medicine, 2) internal
medicine, with lectures in bacteriology, virology, fluid therapy, nutrition, and food animal production medicine and
record keeping, 3) necropsy, and 4) disease investigation studies on 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 the pre-veterinary students. On-campus faculty members serve as
advisors for pre-veterinary students. One WI Program faculty member in the AVS Department and stationed at
Moscow, teaches in the second- and third-year instructional programs at the Washington State University College of
Veterinary Medicine. Two 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
The Caine Veterinary Teaching Center Faculty and Staff
invite you for a learning experience you will never forget!
Once the Washington-Idaho 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:
