TV1003 - Animal Structure and Function
|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Veterinary & Biomedical Sciences (pre 2015)
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, chemistry and biochemistry. 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.
Included in this subject are Personal and Professional Development workshops which
aim to provide students with the skills necessary to practice as a veterinarian in
our changing world and to equip them with the skills to succeed in this course.
- Understanding of veterinary anatomy of domestic animals;
- Understanding of physiology of domestic animals;
- Understanding of basic organic chemistry.
