TV1003 - Animal Structure and Function
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
Available to BVSc students only
This subject is the first of three subjects in the BVSc programme which are designed
to provide students with a solid understanding of the structure and function of animals,
and the techniques that are available to study them. The focus will be on animal embryology,
veterinary anatomy, histology, physiology and chemistry. These basic sciences underpin
'normal' animal function. Knowledge of normal structure function is required for the
understanding of diseases and disease processes and their management.
- list and explain factors that can affect the absorption, distribution, metabolism
and excretion of drugs("pharmacokinetics") and drug-receptor interactions("pharmacodynamics");
- discuss the use of chemistry in the wider scientific context, particularly in the
biological, biomedical, earth and environmental sciences;
- demonstrate the ability to acquire, organise and communicate new information and demonstrate
active and consistent collaboration in small group work;
- be able to describe the normal structure, function and development of the musculoskeletal
and nervous systems, and special senses of domestic animals and livestock;
- define and use subject specific vocabulary; discuss and apply the principles of biosafety
in relation to the handling of animal tissues and surgical instruments.
