This subject, together with Transitions from Health to Disease 1, makes up the third level 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, which are then delivered through five identified elements. The identified elements are: 1. Pathology 2. Introduction to Livestock Management and Equine Medicine 3. Introduction to Small Animal Clinical Studies 4. Veterinary Career Development 5. Research Proposal. Pathology completes systemic pathology examining the pathologic basis of disease in the cardiovascular, urogenital, integumentary, endocrine, nervous, eye and musculoskeletal systems. Introduction to Livestock Management and Equine Medicine examines the legislative and operational aspects of state veterinary medicine and veterinary public health, differences in structure of the cattle industries in Australia, bovine clinical examination and lameness, medicine in the pig, poultry and small ruminant industries and equine dermatology, wound management, lameness and podiatry. Introduction to Small Animal Clinical Studies prepares students for their clinical years through introduction to diagnostic clinical reasoning and problem orientated record keeping, small animal clinical examination dermatology and emergency critical care, the principles of diagnostic imaging and radiation safety, behavioural medicine, surgery and wound management, anaesthesiology, small animal nutrition and introductory clinical pathology. The Veterinary Career Development theme 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. The research proposal develops skills in evidence based analysis of a proposed problem in the field of veterinary science.
Attend all practical sessions, workshops, tutorials which are compulsory. Attempt all summative on-course assessment and achieve a satisfactory standard in each identified hurdle. Achieve a percentage of 50% plus 1 SEM (Standard Error of Measurement) to pass the end of semester examination. A minimum of 50% for each Identified Element must also be achieved.
