Small Animal Surgery (UVTHS) (VETS5348)

UNIT OF STUDY

UVTHS rotations are designed to give veterinary interns experience in general practice and exposure to the kinds of clients and cases they will encounter upon graduation. In addition, rotation through the referral services will provide students with the opportunity to manage more complex cases and, be exposed to scenarios where referral to a person or practice with more advanced knowledge, training or equipment is indicated. Students will participate in all UVTHS activities, including (but not restricted to) client communication, history taking, physical examination, collection of samples for basic diagnostic tests, radiography, developing treatment plans, routine health management, disease management, medical, surgical and anaesthetic procedures, management of patients in hospital, medical record keeping, intensive care duty and weekend duty.
