Learning objectives
Il percorso 08 si pone due obiettivi. Il primo è quello di introdurre lo studente ad alcuni aspetti della gestione della fauna selvatica a vita libera, in particolare alle problematiche della conservazione della biodiversità e dell'integrità degli ecosistemi, ai principali principi di gestione della fauna, ed infine al riconoscimento e gestione dei contaminanti ed effetti tossicologici sulla fauna. Il secondo obiettivo e quello di una attività clinica attraverso una rotazione ospedaliera dei principali campi della clinica medica e chirurgica.
