Veterinary Extension
Ohio State University Extension – Veterinary Medicine (or "Veterinary Extension") is a unit within the Department of Veterinary Preventive Medicine. Extension veterinarians in the department serve as state Extension specialists as well as faculty members of the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM). Funding for these positions is shared between OSU Extension (usually 65% FTE or more) and the CVM or the Center for Food Animal Health at CFAES Wooster. Unlike Veterinary Extension at some other universities, state specialists in veterinary medicine at Ohio State hold tenure-track positions in the department; and they are expected to demonstrate excellence in teaching, research, and professional service as are other tenure-track faculty in the college. Extension education (teaching) programs are the principal extension focus as opposed to diagnostic service.
