This subject is dedicated to providing a deeper comprehension and understanding of surgery, anaesthesia and dentistry. The underlying pathophysiology of common conditions of these areas will be presented to enable the student to increase their understanding of disease processes as well as the practicalities of surgical and dentistry techniques. This increased understanding encourages critical reflection and evaluation, increasing clinical confidence, thus providing better patient outcomes for the veterinary practitioner.
Each topic will be covered in depth in separate tutorials. The case log and case studies that form part of the subject are designed for the student to reflect on the disease present to enable successful case outcomes.
