Students are exposed to factors affecting success in veterinary medical school and metacognition groups/teams/questioning. It includes assessment of learning in courses and self-assessment as a learning strategy, examination techniques, learning styles and approaches to learning, application of learning styles, and learning strategies for basic science courses, as well as veterinary medical problem solving for clinical cases. Multiple-choice test-taking skills are discussed.
The course will focus on the biology, epidemiology, and control of clinically important nematode parasites of ruminants and horses. Emphasis is placed on clinical and diagnostic issues relating to host-parasite interactions and the development of evidence-based parasite control programs. Traditional programs for parasite control are no longer valid and often fail due to the high prevalence of anthelmintic resistant parasites. Consequently, new strategies and approaches arc required that consider broad issues relating to the biological factors associated with the development of drug resistance as well as modem principles of evidence-based veterinary medicine. This course will cover broad issues relating to host-parasite interactions, parasite epidemiology, parasite diagnosis, and the development of drug resistance. This information will then be used to explain how to control parasites in ruminant s and horses using evidence-based principles, and how drug resistance can be prevented and managed, while still achieving superior parasite control that is sustainable.
Students participate through practical clinical experience and perform a variety of medical and surgical techniques.
Students master the art of clinical examination, disease diagnosis, surgical and therapeutic approaches for fish species. Appropriate emphasis is placed on species-specific behavioral and physiological adaptations.
This course is designed for students with an interest in bioethics who want to further develop their knowledge and professional competencies. It deals with newsworthy topics including public health, medicine, professionalism, research, veterinary medicine, and others.
This course serves as an introductory course of forensic procedures as they may be needed by a health care or law enforcement professional. Future physicians, veterinarians, public health officials or law enforcement personnel will study the underlying principles and concepts of modern forensic procedures with emphasis on preservation of evidence and securing of crime scenes, and proper maintenance of the chain of custody in dealing with crime scene evidence.
Research Experience These courses provide students with the opportunity to engage in one-one faculty-mentored, focused research projects in veterinary medicine. They provide a flexible mechanism for obtaining one to four (1-4) course credits for successfully completing the research learning outcomes.
