Learning objectives
The aim of the course is to allow students to complete clinical training by perfecting the practical learning of "day-one competences", minimum essential competences that all veterinary students have to meet when they graduate, to ensure that they are safe to practice on day one, in whichever area of the profession they start to work. For this purpose, the practical activity is organized as clinical rotation during which students participate in all the clinical activities of the different Hospital Units. In addition, a specific practical training is provided by an active participation of the students to clinical consultations and surgical procedures performed on patients affected by reproductive disorders. Students are trained in the physical examination of the female and male genital system of small animals. Instructions are also given on medical and surgical treatment of mammary diseases, on assisted reproductive techniques and neonatal resuscitation and therapy.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course students will be able to demonstrate the acquired "day-one competences". They will be able to perform a clinical consultation (knowledge and applied understanding) and to select collateral tests that the clinical case might require. They will also know how to define a prognosis and a therapeutic plan (independent judgment). Communication skills will be demonstrated by the appropriate use of scientific terminology, but also by the use of a common language in order to establish an effective communication with the owner of the animal. Concerning small animal reproduction, students, evaluating the results of the direct physical examination and of the most common collateral investigations used in reproduction such as colpocytology, hormone determinations and ultrasound, will define a prognosis and a therapeutic plan.
