					FORT WORTH ZOO VETERINARY STUDENT PRECEPTORSHIP SYLLABUS

The following brief summary describes a general planned curriculum. Given the nature of zoological medicine, adjustments will be
made as necessary based on the clinic caseload and emergency procedures.

       designated for project development and for clinical reading.
      Sundays will be days for rotation through the other departments in the zoo.
      Clinical procedures will take place in the mornings. All other activities will be in the afternoons or as assigned.
      Weekly literature review will occur on Thursday afternoons.
      Study time will be scheduled on a weekly basis for article research and reading as available. As mentioned earlier, most study
