|Description, acquired knowledge||The subject Veterinary bacteriology includes knowledge of bacteriology relevant in veterinary medicine together with certain chapters of mycology. In the framework of the subject bacteriology the students learn general bacteriology, specific bacteriology and mycology with a special focus on pathogens of veterinary importance. In the practicals students have to acquire simple bacteriological laboratory techniques and identification procedures. Characteristics of the most important pathogenic bacteria are studied as well. Teaching is organised in the form of lectures, plenary practicals and small group laboratory practicals.|
After absolving the subject the students will be able to
· recognise the most important bacteria and fungi of veterinary and human relevance,
· carry out laboratory examinations in order to identify them,
· understand the role of bacteria and fungi in life, in pathology, physiology, nutrition and ecology,
· implement disinfection and sterilisation methods,
· understand the principles of antibacterial treatments,
· understand the pathological consequences of genetic changes of bacteria.
|Rules of the practicals|| |
· Attending the practicals is compulsory, absence (maximum 3 occasions) – including justified ones – should be retaken. Retake can happen on the same week by joining another group or as an oral report by the practical teacher. Students can absolve the practical with another group if there are free seats available.
· Wearing white coat at the practicals is compulsory.
· Overcoats and bags have to be left in the lockers in the changing room. They can be locked with locks of the students.
· Eating, drinking and smoking is forbidden in the practical room.
· Accidents at the practicals have to be reported to the teacher at the practicals.
|Teaching environment||Computer aided lectures are given in the Urbányi and Magyary-Kossa lecture halls of the campus. The practicals are held in the 16-head practical room of the department (1143, Budapest, Hungária krt. 23-25.), where individual microscopes and computerised summaries help the understanding. The basic laboratory examinations can be carried out by the students themselves and the complicated methods are demonstrated here as well. The demonstration material is prepared in the bacteriology laboratory of the department.|

|Evaluation||· Lectures serve as the basis of the subject, active participation at the lectures is precondition of a successful examination.
· Attending the plenary lectures is compulsory.
· Preparation to the practicals is controlled in the form of written or oral tests. Students without knowing the theoretical subject of the practical are regarded absent.
