|Summary||Animal Body 1 (AB1) for GEP comprises lectures and practicals in veterinary topographical anatomy specifically designed for graduate students in the animal sciences embarking on the four year graduate-entry BVM&S programme.
As is usual in veterinary anatomy, the dog is taught as the anatomical ¿type¿ species and most detail is given in relation to this species. The course does not include systems anatomy, which forms part of the Animal Body Systems and Cases course (ABSC). Practicals involve dissection of ethically-sourced canine bodies and demonstrations using bones, specimens and prosected material. Electronic learning resources are used in the course.
