This unit of study will provide students with essential experience and training in the management of primary care and emergency cases and the care of hospitalised patients at the University Veterinary Teaching Hospital Sydney (UVTHS). Students will have the opportunity to practice clinically-relevant techniques such as history taking, physical examination, diagnostic sample collection, interpretation of radiographs and ultrasound, medical record keeping, critical analysis of case-related information, development and implementation of treatment plans and evaluation of outcomes. In primary care there is an additional focus on developing comprehensive wellness and preventative care, appropriate life stage and health status. The focus for emergency medicine will be on triage and care of cases presenting in an emergency situation. In addition, students will intergrate various learning activities to effectively diagnose and treat patients and develop skills to enhance the client-veterinarian and veterinarian-patient relationship and form effective collegial teams. There will be priority given to achievement of day one competencies.
