Degree in Veterinary Medicine

Presentation

Structured over five years, this degree equips students to handle domestic animals and cure their illnesses, understand perfectly the prevention of zoonoses, optimise livestock and fish farming, and master the key elements of food inspection and health and hygiene controls.

At UAX

During the first few years students review concepts from subjects such as chemistry and physics, statistics, biology and biochemistry which have been adapted to the training requirements of this degree. They also study specific core veterinary subjects. From the fourth year onward students begin intensive practical instruction, rotating among the different services at the UAX Veterinary Hospital.

Lecturers

The teaching staff consists of professors, veterinarians, biologists, chemists, agricultural engineers, jurists and professionals from other related specialisations suitable for each particular subject. The teaching team is noteworthy because of its prestige in the fields of clinical veterinary sciences, public health and bromatology.

Facilities

Students have access to modern laboratories and workshops to conduct their hands-on sessions, including the Biology, Chemistry and Analysis laboratories. Other facilities are available for the acquisition of more specialised skills. For example, the Food Technology Pilot Plant, which enables students to develop skills for food production applying the appropriate regulations.

What makes us different

We offer the quality training required by society, covering all the fields a Veterinary graduate needs. We teach using farm animals, with practical work in establishments using all species with productive value.  We also provide teaching in food technology, production, handling, conservation, manufacturing and distribution as regards health and hygiene.

Employment Opportunities

Graduates from the Degree in Veterinary can very quickly join the job market in many areas. They can work in veterinary medicine, animal production and public health such as the prevention of transmission of animal diseases, hygiene controls and food technology, and even vaccine production.
