Educational objectives
Our educational objective is to provide a curriculum and the instructional resources necessary to enable students to obtain the professional title of lekarz weteryanrii (brit. Veterinary Surgeon; am. Doctor of Veterinary Medicine). The Faculty has sought to develop a curriculum that provides a strong foundation in veterinary medical sciences. It is expected that graduates will be well versed in fundamentals of veterinary medical sciences and will be able to meet the professional challenges they will encounter throughout their career in various specialisation, from small and farm animal diseases to meat hygiene and veterinary legislation. At the latter years, a high effort is put towards development of student’s personal interests through variety of elective courses and honours scientific project opportunities.
Brief programme of studies
The five&half-year degree programme consists of a total of 124 mandatory courses and electives. The diploma is received after passing all exams. Each academic year is divided into two semesters with a substantial winter and summer break. This programme is intensive, with students taking roughly 900-1000 hours of classes (60 ECTS) per year. a) First year: students develop a basic understanding of the life sciences underpinning veterinary medicine and become familiar with veterinary and medical terms. The main courses are animal anatomy, histology and embryology in order to help students to obtain profound knowledge of the composition of the animal body.
b) Second year: students delve more deeply into the life sciences, particularly anatomy, physiology and veterinary immunology. In this year students begin studying microbiology and learn about animal breeding and nutrition. The introduction to animal well-being and ethology helps mastering future clinical courses.
c) Third year: students have mastered all basic courses and enter the preclinical courses. Students are exposed to imaging diagnostics principles and focus on clinical diagnostics and public health protection.
d) Fourth year: students continue practising in the field, focusing on a variety of animals, from fish, accompanying animals to ruminants and swine.
e) Fifth and Sixth year: contagious and internal disease and surgery techniques become a main focus as students investigate various animal disease and learn about animal obstetrics and gynaecology. Faculty clinics and cooperating farms are also an important part of this year's studies. Last semester is devoted mostly towards electives profiling individual interests of future veterinarian.
