The first and second year of the Master’s curriculum cover the entire spectrum of veterinary medicine in the form of lectures, practical exercises, and clinics. You study various diseases and deviations in terms of cause, pathogenesis, symptoms, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. In addition, there is a strong focus on the animal as a food source, veterinary rules and regulations and ethics. Our curriculum combines extensive theoretical training with practical exercises and clinical work.
The first year-and-a-half of the Master’s curriculum focuses on theoretical, clinically oriented course units. The curriculum contains the first components of the Master’s dissertation as well as the concluding course units on veterinary public health. In the second term of the second Master’s year, the curriculum exclusively contains course units on utility animals (animals as a food source). The main emphasis is on veterinary business counselling.
In the third year (main subject Pig, Poultry, Rabbit), you will spend most of your time on company visits to different pig and poultry farms. In addition, you embark on a mandatory work placement at a veterinary practice and you finalize the last components of the Master’s dissertation.
