2017 Poultry Medicine Workshops

Veterinary Extension at The Ohio State University is pleased to offer three separate "Poultry Medicine Workshops" to be held in in the general vicinity of the Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati-Dayton metropolitan areas . Each one-day program consists of lecture followed by a wet lab in the afternoon.  The program is led by Dr. Mohamed El-Gazzar, OSU Poultry Extension Veterinarian, with instructors consisting of various poultry experts. The purpose is to introduce veterinary practitioners in small animal and mixed animal practice to poultry medicine. The goal is to provide veterinarians with the necessary knowledge, skills, and resources to accept poultry clients. Noncommercial and urban backyard poultry producers are a growing and underserved population that will continue to require more veterinary involvement in the future.
