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 and physiology. 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.
- demonstrate active and consistent collaboration in small group work;
- describe the normal structure, function and development of the musculoskeletal and
nervous systems, and special senses of domestic animals and livestock;
- define and apply subject specific vocabulary; discuss and apply the principles of
biosafety in relation to the handling of animal tissues.
