You will explore the broad range of opportunities that a Veterinary Medicine degree can provide. Alongside discussion of the day to day practicalities of life as a vet, you will also explore the ethics, finances and legal considerations of a career in this field.
You will explore advanced theory across a variety of species to understand the principles of a comparative approach to Veterinary Medicine. Theory is then put into practice as you’ll view a range of anatomical structures through carefully guided dissections.
You will explore the structure and function of key sense organs before considering the techniques required for a neurological assessment of a range of animals. In parallel, you will also consider animal management, handling and husbandry.
You will independently research a current article or paper to analyse its significance for the field of veterinary science. Present your findings to your peers and answer questions from the audience.
