automed is pleased to announce a collaboration with Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine (ISU CVM) and the Swine Medicine Education Center (SMEC). automed will be co-sponsoring the Swine Veterinary Internship Program (SVIP) which will include a trial and research of the automed system.

Through this program, automed will be working closely with intern Gabi Wilson to implement research in the swine industry and how automed can benefit swine producers. Wilson is a student at Iowa State University working towards her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.

“We are excited to be partnering with Iowa State University as co-sponsor of this research project,” comments Kathleen Gilman, automed CXO who is overseeing this project and working closely with the intern this summer. “This research will provide further insights into the benefits that automed has within the swine industry, as well as valuable feedback to help automed to continue to improve.”

The Swine Veterinary Internship Program (SVIP) was developed to enhance the traditional swine veterinary internship experience. The program is designed to give students an opportunity to obtain not only swine specific skills and knowledge that complements the veterinary curriculum early in their professional education, but to also learn how to conduct field research, and communicate the results in written and oral forms. The program facilitates networking among students from multiple universities and with future colleagues. The 12-week program typically runs from the 3rd week of May through the second week in August.
