Objectives of the Programme:
The aim of the Integrated Master's Program in Veterinary will equip graduates to:
know the biological characteristics of animals and their applications in practice;
know of animal diseases and relevant biological specificities: aetiology, pathogenesis and their clinical manifestations;
know and use the methods, tools, and principles of diagnostics, treatment, and prevention of animal's different diseases;
be able to accomplish diagnostic manipulations and to use appropriate devices;
be able to conduct surgery manipulations;
know the biotechnology of animal breeding and methods of artificial insemination;
know the groups of pharmaceuticals, the mechanism of their action, and the peculiarities of application;
know preventive principles, tools, and actions against infectious diseases;
know husbandry, stock-breeding, and nutrition issues of breeding;
know specificities of veterinary-sanitary examinations of animal products and be aware of the issues related to food safety;
be aware of the veterinary legislation and possess skills of professional ethics;
know to use biomedical principles in clinical and scientific research.
To achieve the above goals, the Integrated Master's Program in Veterinary focuses on proper planning and implementation of theoretical and practical teaching. This implies the realization of the practice in parallel with the theoretical study of the subjects. Students will be engaged in interactive learning and use their knowledge to perform various practical tasks. This will facilitate the development of students' practical (clinical, industrial, and scientific research) skills and study the subjects covered by the Program, which will result in the supply of the labour market by competent and qualified specialists. Additionally, the Program will give graduates a good base for studying in doctoral programs and developing a possible scientific career.
The graduates of the Integrated Master's Program of Veterinary have broad employment perspectives. After the completion of the Program, the graduate will be to pursue a career in the following state and private sectors:
Veterinary clinics and laboratories: prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of animal diseases (outpatient and inpatient);
