Research at Hartman Aviary

In 1980 medical knowledge of parrots was primitive. Today we are achieving the diagnostic abilities found in other areas of veterinary medicine. In order to develop the medical knowledge needed at Hartman Aviary, Steve established his own clinic to satisfy many of the aviary's veterinary needs at the facility. This clinic, with its large collection of birds, allowed them to open the facility to Ohio State University Vet School Teaching Hospital. From 1990 to 2002 the Ohio State University utilized the aviary, for an accredited course, for training junior vet students in outpatient clinical care of parrots.
