Turtle Team

The Turtle Team is a well organized student run organization led by Professor Greg Lewbart, that provides medical and surgical treatment to injured turtles of all types.  For over 20 years NCSU DVM students have worked diligently to improve and learn about the medical and surgical needs of turtles hit by cars, mowers or other vehicles or traumatized by dogs or other means.  Their aggregate work has greatly advanced the state of turtle medicine and their program is now emulated at several veterinary colleges around the country.  The opportunity to work on Turtle Team gives students much needed practical experience in all aspects of case management.
