|Non Allowed Subjects:|| |
|Core Participation Requirements:||
Students should refer to the Core Participation Requirements statement for the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine:
VETS70004 Veterinary Bioscience 2 continues the integrated and interdisciplinary approach to the study of organ function and dysfunction in animals that is introduced in Veterinary Bioscience 1. Building on students’ prior knowledge of organ function and dysfunction and their experience of scientific and clinical reasoning, this subject introduces students to the structure and normal functioning of the haemopoietic and lymphoreticular, locomotory and integumentary, reproductive and nervous and endocrine systems, and to the principles of dysfunction of these systems. Students will be introduced to the clinical disciplines of pharmacology and therapeutics, diagnostic imaging and clinical pathology as they relate to these systems. Using case based teaching approaches they will apply their understanding of organ and system function and dysfunction to authentic situations that enhance the development of integrative clinical reasoning abilities, and to analysis of cases that involve multiple organ perturbation.
At the completion of this course students should be able to:
Five units and one evidence-based medicine research activity will be undertaken in this subject.
Unit 1 Haemopoietic, Lymphoreticular and Integumentary Systems - (20% of total subject assessment)
Unit 2 Locomotion - (20% of total subject assessment)
Unit 3 Nervous and Endocrine Systems - (20% of total subject assessment)
Unit 4 Reproduction - (20% of total subject assessment)
Unit 5 Regional Anatomy of the Dog - (10% of total subject assesment)
The passing of each unit on aggregate mark is a hurdle requirement.
Students are required to pass the subject on aggregate mark.
