This capstone subject takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the investigation of health and disease in domestic animals. Students will be introduced to the structural and functional organisational units of the body and to the fundamental principles of veterinary anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, general pathology and immunology. Students will gain a theoretical knowledge and practical laboratory skills that are fundamental to an appraisal of the health of domestic animals.
Intended learning outcomes
This subject aims to provide a road map of key concepts within the disciplines of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, general pathology and immunology that will equip students embarking on systems based integrated and applied studies in animal health.
