BrownfieldAgNews reports:

Courtesy of an anonymous donor, Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine will offer a fully endowed teaching program in poultry medicine.

The program supports one or more graduate students in a training and residency program in the college's Department of Comparative Pathobiology.

Pat Wakenell, associate professor of avian diagnostics at Purdue and co-head of avian diagnostics at the Indiana Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory says, "With the rise in popularity of the general public running hobby farms, there is a lack of knowledge and skills needed to address the health and wellness of poultry and other livestock."

This program helps meet a need for poultry veterinarians.

The residency program will provide training in all major areas of poultry medicine like diagnostic pathology and farm visit.

Purdue's first resident in the program, Yuko Sato, a 2012 doctor of veterinary medicine graduate, started the program in August 2012 and will continue for three years. A second resident is expected to begin in July.
