This subject follows on from Introductory Veterinary Science, AG1007, TV1102 and CH1001. The aim of the subject is to provide students with the fundamental principles of management and production in the major livestock species and species commonly aquacultured in Australia. This includes grazing land management; animal welfare and ethics; the foundations of inheritance and principles underlying genetics testing and the use of chemistry in the wider scientific context and development. This subject is also 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. Included in this subject are Personal and Professional veterinary career development workshops (as part of the Veterinary Career Development program) which aim to provide students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to practice as a veterinarian in our changing world and to equip them with the skills to succeed in this course.
Attend all compulsory classes. Attempt all summative on-course assessments and achieve a satisfactory standard in each identified hurdle assessment. A pass standard in safety competencies for practical animal handling is required. Achieve 50% plus 1 SEM (Standard Error of Measurement) to pass the end-of-semester examinations. Achieve a minimum of 50% for each Identified Element. A total of 50% Overall Total Score (on-course plus total examination mark) is required to pass the subject.
