Learning objectives
L'obiettivo del percorso è quello di permettere agli studenti di completare la formazione clinica perfezionando l'apprendimento pratico delle "day-one competences", minimo di competenze richiesto per l'avvio verso i differenti ruoli della professione veterinaria. A tal fine l'attività didattica è organizzata in forma di rotazione ospedaliera durante la quale gli studenti partecipano a tutte le attività cliniche dei diversi reparti dell'Ospedale. A questo si aggiunge una formazione specifica sempre a carattere pratico-applicativo circa i vari aspetti della riproduzione nei carnivori domestici. A questo scopo, attraverso l'attività ambulatoriale e chirurgica del reparto di Riproduzione, si 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.

ATTENDING STUDENTS
Clinical Rotation
Syllabus
Active participation in all hospital activities.
Phisiopathology of Reproduction
Syllabus
This course is aimed at investigating on both physiological and pathological reproductive aspects in small animals. Students will actively participate in the monitoring of the reproductive cycle, management of mating/artificial insemination, control of pregnancy and birth, and in the andrological evaluation of the male. Students will be leaded into the recognition of physiological and pathological conditions of the reproductive area. Learning wil be supported by medical clinic, ultrasound, laboratory, and surgical practice.
Neonatology
Syllabus
In this course the students will be involved in the management of normal newborn puppies and kittens, born by Caesarean section or assisted parturition, orphans and also of pathologic newborns. Under the supervision of the teacher, they will perform a post natal newborn evaluation and resuscitation, will manage orphans and diseased newborns, and will perform the correct clinical examination in the neonate. 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. Small groups of students will prepare a power-point presentation for clinical cases discussion and for relevant papers consultation and discussion.
Assisted Reproductive Techniques
Syllabus
Seminars and practical teaching on the application of Assisted Reproductive Techniques to domestic carnivores.
Specific topics:
- study of the optimal breeding/insemination time
- collection and evaluation of gametes
- treatment of gametes for Assisted Reproductive Techniques
- gamete cryopreservation
Clinical case discussion and analysis of scientific papers focused on highly relevant specific topics.
