This subject, which together with Integrated Animal Structure and Function - 1, makes up the second level of the BVSc degree program. The integrated curriculum is structured around a number of overlapping Themes that combine knowledge, skills and attitudes, which are then delivered through a series of four identified elements. The Identified Elements are: Structure and Function; Agents of Disease and Defence; Pathology and Parasitology and Veterinary Career Development. In this subject the Structure and Function identified element will provide students with a solid understanding of the diversity of living things, the structure and function of animals including the basis for pharmacological intervention, and the techniques that are available to study them within the context of veterinary practice. The focus of the Agents of Disease and Defence identified element is to enable students to understand disease processes including their molecular and cellular basis, animal defence mechanisms, the diversity of causative organisms and their diagnosis. The principles of epidemiology and research methodology are discussed and provide students the skills necessary for the assessment and interpretation of animal population data. The Pathology and Parasitology identified element explain the basic pathologic processes in animals and describe parasitic diseases of ruminants and horses. The Veterinary Career Development identified element will provide students with the skills necessary to practice as a veterinarian in our changing world and to be able to continually access and use information as knowledge progresses.
Attend all practical sessions, workshops, tutorials and field trips, which are compulsory. Attempt all summative on-course assessments and achieve a satisfactory standard in each identified hurdle assessment. Achieve 50% plus 1 SEM (Standard Error of Measurement) to pass the end-of-semester examinations. A minimum of 50% for each Identified Element must be achieved. A total of 50% Overall Total Score (on-course plus total examination mark) is required to pass the subject.
