Ohio Dairy Health Certification


Orrville Veterinary Clinic is very proud to be one of four veterinary clinics across the state to join together with several practices across the country to participate in the Ohio Dairy Health and Management Certificate Program (ODHMCP). The Ohio Dairy Health and Management Certificate Program is a program sponsored by The Ohio State University. The ODHMCP brings experts from across the country to lead education in 10 major areas of dairy production medicine. There are 11 modules in total, with each module lasting 3 days. There are 3-4 modules/year and therefore the program lasts for 3 years. By participating in all modules it allows the dairy veterinarian to be eligible to sit for the board exam to become board certified in the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners with a specialty in dairy practice. Drs. Wenger and Yost will be taking the modules that interest them and Dr. Middleton will be taking all 11 modules (he will take some on-line since he can’t attend them all). Once Dr. Middleton has completed them all, he will then be eligible to sit for the board exam. When he passes the boards, it will mark first time we will have a specialty board certified veterinarian at Orrville Veterinary Clinic. The first module was last weekend, with a specialist from Cornell University Presenting the material.
