Clinic Skills Labs

About Our Clinic Skills Labs Experiences….


Since 2018 V.E.T. has joined forces with local private practitioners and industry representatives to organize a variety of hands-on clinical experiences for veterinary students of all years. Practitioners and students work in small groups to tackle learning clinical skills in several areas of equine medicine.

    Q: Where are the wet labs held?

    A: Wet labs are generally hosted at local private practices. If an Industry Sponsor would like to work with V.E.T. on organizing a larger scale wet lab at a local venue (i.e. Heritage Place) this can be done.


    Q: Who teaches the wet labs?

    A: Wet labs are taught by veterinarians of the host practice as well as V.E.T. Board Members and other volunteers.


    Q: How many students attend each wet lab?

    A: Class size varies based on subject content and venue capacity.


    Q: When are wet labs held?

    A: Wet labs are typically held on a Saturday or Sunday. Length of wet lab varies based on subject content.


    Q: Who supplies materials and equipment used during wet labs?

    A: This can be answered many ways as it depends on the wet lab itself. V.E.T. will work with the hosting practice and Industry Sponsors to have supplies and equipment donated if possible. As this organization continues to grow our hope is to be able to furnish more and more of what is necessary for these wet labs.

    I really enjoyed each wet lab that was put together. They were not only well organized and informative, but a lot of fun. It was great to speak one on one with real practitioners, while learning hands on skills we will use in the future.

    It was great getting to work with experienced equine veterinarians. I really appreciated the time they spent teaching us. It showed that they really care about producing a future competent veterinarian.

    The wet lab that I attended went really well and I am glad that I got the opportunity to work with experienced vets from all over Oklahoma. I look forward to attending more labs like these in the future.

    The VET program has exceeded my expectations in providing quality hands on experiences to CVHS students with horses in husbandry, physical examination skills and practice management. These experiences under the guidance of talented practitioners, will increase our student’s readiness to enter practice and to have an immediate impact to the equine industry after graduation.

    I am so thankful that veterinarians from around Oklahoma want to help in the success of future veterinarians by creating opportunities for students to get hands on experience and build connections.
