VET30570 Veterinary Pathobiology II
Academic Year 2021/2022
This module, along with the complementary module VET 30560 (Veterinary Pathobiology I), comprises lectures and practical classes/tutorials and scaffolded case-based learning where veterinary undergraduates learn the principles of veterinary microbiology, parasitology, and pathology, that underpin their subsequent study of the diseases of body systems and their ‘paraclinical rotation’ in the clinical final year. The integration and alignment of teaching and learning within the module promotes student-centred learning with a focus on the ability to apply knowledge to real life scenarios. The module focusses in particular on the subjects of virology, helminthology, and clinical pathology
This module develops the following attributes in students within the overarching three domains of competence of the MVB professional programme. UCD-MVB programme outcomes as well as the accreditation requirements of VCI, AVMA and EAEVE addressed by each attribute are indicated by the codes provided in brackets*.
4. Knowledge – must demonstrate an underpinning knowledge of pathobiology and its applications. This will include the ability to search, retrieve and critically evaluate scientific evidence (UCD-MVB-5, 27 and 29, VCI-K-1 and 4, VCI-GC-2 and 6, EAEVE-GPSA-2.2.1, 2, 3, 5, 8 and 9, 2.3.8 AVMA1, 2, and 17)
5. Skills – must demonstrate competence in carrying out selected laboratory diagnostic procedures and apply problem-solving skills in reaching a diagnosis (UCD-MVB-8 and 30, VCI-GC-16, EAEVE-GSPA-2.3.6 and 16, AVMA3 and 9)
6. Professional – must demonstrate the ability to communicate clearly and work collaboratively with others (UCD-MVB-1 and 2, VCI-PC-2 and 9, EAEVE-GPSA-2.1.3)
