Practical lessons theme
2 -14. week
For the whole semester:
General practice on all practicals according to the available carcasses
Description of the pathologic lesions
At the end of the 6th semester the evaluation is a five level qualification based on the activity on practicals during the semester written in the black book as a practical mark. The evaluation is based on the work at the practicals, the dissecting skills and the inclination to pathology as a discipline.
The signature at the end of the semester is conditioned by the fulfillment of the practical requirements.
Only 3 missings from practicals are accepted, and certificate for these occasions are required.
No exam scheduled in this semester. Evaluation is based on the practical grades.
Optional additionalstudy material beside lecture notes:
- Jubb, Kennedy and Palmer’s: Pathology of Domestic Animals Volumes 1-3
