Students at the University of Calgary faculty of Veterinary Medicine (UCVM) now have the use of three full-size horse simulators. According to a statement from UCVM, they are the only models of their kind in the world.aUCVM_equine_simulator

With added funding from Equine Foundation of Canada (EFC), the models now not only help students learn techniques such as rectal palpation and abdominal (belly) taps, but also a wide range of other procedures. Students practice on the simulators before moving on to live horses.

Faculty at UCVM worked with experts in building movie props and educational tools at Veterinary Simulator Industries to create the three equine simulators.
EFC is a registered charity that provides funding for the five veterinarian medicine programs in Canada.
