Course Content Year 1

You will study the Animal Body 1 and 2, integrating anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, introductory pathology and infection and immunity. You also study animal health, welfare and food safety (AHWAFS) and begin courses in professional and clinical skills.

Year 2

You will continue integrated anatomy, physiology and pathology in The Animal Body 3 and the opportunity to integrate materials learnt in The Animal Body 1, 2 and 3 during The Animal Body 4 at the end of the year. AHWAFS and professional and clinical skills courses continue. You will also work on a group-based, student-selected component.

Year 3

You will study a clinical foundation course (surgery, diagnostic imaging, applied pharmacology, anaesthesia, evidence based veterinary medicine and clinical oncology), veterinary pathology and the dog and cat integrated clinical course. AHWAFS and professional and clinical skills courses continue. You also select a research project to work on over the next two years as your student-selected component.

Year 4

Species-based clinical studies continue with the farm animal, equine and exotics integrated clinical courses. AHWAFS continues. You will continue to plan and then carry out your small research project in your chosen area of veterinary medicine. The professional and clinical skills course focuses on preparation for the final clinical year.

Year 5

Your final year is lecture-free, with the emphasis on practical experience. Clinical rotations are carried out in our hospitals and support services to gain wide-ranging practical experience and develop professional skills. The final year is longer than the previous years and incorporates externship and elective periods to allow you to focus on areas of individual interest. You will bring together your personal and professional development portfolio.
