Course description

Students' knowledge and skills in microbiology, epidemiology, veterinary medicine, pathology, livestock production and welfare are applied to human health and environmental protection. The course provides a basic understanding of zoonotic diseases and food security that can be built upon by both the practising clinical veterinarian and for those intending to develop a career in One Health. The Applied Diagnostic Pathology component develops and enhances students' knowledge and applied skills in performing thorough gross necropsies, selecting appropriate specimens for diagnostic testing, and investigating and understanding pathological processes such that a diagnostic plan and outcome are achieved.
