The discipline aims to form students theoretical knowledge and practical skills in animal anatomy in the amount necessary for the work of a veterinarian.
11 Competences to be developed:
- oral presentation, communication skills;
- analytical skills,
- ability to formulate problems,
- ability to effectively search for, find, systemize and analyze data,
- collaborative and leadership skills.
Ability to operate professional methods and special tools:
- examination and palpation of the animal body, palpation of bone protrusions, ligaments, synovial inversions of all joints;
- preparation of the animal for autopsy;
- fine preparation, isolation of small organs, analysis of the structure of organs and systems;
- examination of individual organs of animals and their structures, detection of macroscopic abnormalities characteristic of individual animal diseases;
- analysis and synthesis of the data obtained as a result of pathoanatomic autopsy of the animal.
12 Learning outcomes Upon successful completion of the discipline students will be able to:
· Describe and analyze:
- the structure of cells and tissue types,
- animal body organs and systems,
- the structure and topography of bones and ligaments.
- the structure and topography of internal organs (splanchnology),
- fundamentals of neurology,
- the structure and topography of the cardiovascular and nervous systems;
· determine the projection of the skeleton and individual bone protrusions on the surface of the animal body;
· carry out the preparation of the animal to the autopsy and the autopsy of the animal, dissect and isolate individual types of muscles, bones and ligaments;
· conduct a fine dissection of blood vessels and nerves, to be able to allocate the organs of the Central nervous system, to conduct an autopsy of the brain;
· open a corpse of an animal taking into account features of separate types of animals;
· extract the organs of the animal, examine and detect abnormalities, select material for additional studies to identify the causes of death of the animal;
· carry out the analysis, systematize the results with regard to the peculiarities of the animal life and the clinical picture of the disease;
· analyze the data of the pathoanatomical autopsy, set up the diagnosis;
assess macroscopic picture characteristic of individual pathological conditions and diseases of animals, including infectious.
