VETERINARY CLINICAL PERSPECTIVES ON ANIMAL FORM, FUNCTION AND HEALTH B
Credit points: 15
This subject builds on learning in Animal Form, Function and Health A with a continued examination of the functional anatomy and physiology of body systems. Topic areas, including fluid regulation and thermoregulation, will also be introduced where students will integrate the body systems into a whole animal perspective. Case studies will be used to explain an animal's overall physiological response to a number of diseases, and to assist students to further develop their collaborative problem solving skills. Through their Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placement, students will continue to assist with the care and management of animal patients, including assisting within veterinary teams to assess, undertake diagnostic tests and nurse patients. The WIL placement will enable students to see the relevance of the subject to real-world veterinary practice.
