Emphasis is on the use of the brainstem auditory evoked response (BAER) for screening and diagnosis of canines and equines, although the skills acquired will transfer to BAER testing of other animals and human infants. Students will also learn about the physiology of hearing and sound production systems of animals. All students will complete 6 credits of practicum working with or observing animals at a local veterinary clinic or other off-campus locations.
