This subject together with Transitions from Health to Disease 2 (TV3002), makes up the third year of the BVSc degree program and the second of two years of the integrated veterinary science curriculum. The integrated curriculum is structured around a number of overlapping themes that combine knowledge, skills and attitudes delivered through a series of teaching modules. The five (5) themes are: Dysfunction, Agents of Disease, Defence and Chemical Agents; Animal Production; Veterinary Services; Veterinary Practice; and Veterinary Professional Life. The Dysfunction, Agents of Disease, Defence and Chemical Agents theme continues to expand your understanding at the molecular and cellular level of the causes and treatment of dysfunction and disease processes associated with exposure of animals to toxic or infectious agents. The Animal Production Systems provides you with an understanding of those aspects of land and animal management as they relate to the delivery of veterinary services. Veterinary Services encompasses those aspects of the veterinary profession that provide a service to the community with a particular focus on meeting legislative requirements and applying regulatory and professional protocols and guidelines as they apply to clinical practice. Elements of Veterinary Practice run through the study period to provide students with a foundation in the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for a professional veterinarian working in a clinical setting. The Veterinary Professional Life theme will provide students with the skills necessary to competently practice as a veterinarian in a changing world and to access, critically assess and incorporate new information into their professional working life as knowledge progresses.
ALL practicals, tutorials, guest lectures, workshops, case studies, tests, presentations, guided learning and field trips are compulsory unless a valid medical certificate is produced.
