Learning objectives
L'obiettivo è fornire agli studenti una formazione a carattere pratico-applicativo circa i vari aspetti della riproduzione nei carnivori domestici. Il percorso formativo, attraverso l'attività ambulatoriale e chirurgica del reparto di Clinica Ostetrica Veterinaria, offrirà agli studenti la possibilità di seguire attivamente tutto il decorso del paziente. Gli studenti, interpretando i risultati dall'esame fisico diretto e delle più comuni indagini collaterali utilizzate in riproduzione come la citologia, il dosaggio ormonale e l'ecografia, potranno giungere a una diagnosi, impostare la terapia e avanzare una prognosi. Inoltre saranno istruiti sui trattamenti medici e chirurgici delle patologie mammarie, sulle più comuni tecniche di riproduzione assistita e sui principi di neonatologia.

Students will be directly involved in the collection of parental, within litter and single newborn signalment and medical history, will perform the clinical examination, opening discussion about possibilities for supplementary investigations in order to make a definite diagnosis, and to choose the most appropriate therapeutic management of the newborn patient. In addition, the students will be involved in the post mortem examination and biological samples collection.
Modulo: Riproduzione assistita

Modulo: Clinica andrologica
Syllabus
In this course the students will be involved in the management of andrological patients.
