Thus they could spend time in a specific practice (such as agricultural animal, aquatic animal, equine, laboratory animal, small animal, or zoo animal practice); or a specific discipline (such as basic research, diagnostic imaging, emergency and critical care, internal medicine, stud work, surgery, ophthalmology, pathology or theriogenology).|

Five 15-minute oral/practical examinations and one 60-minute multiple choice examination covering all the clinical and applied aspects of all subjects in the third and fourth years of the BVSc and including all aspects of veterinary public health (each 10%). Students must pass each examination and each elective rotation.
