The programme is divided into three main areas:
- Structural and Integrated Sciences
- Clinical and Applied Sciences
- Practice and Professionalism
The Structural and Integrated Sciences provide the basic science of the animal in health and disease. The Clinical and Applied Sciences provide the tools for assessing the normal and abnormal functioning of the animal when static and in motion, and leads to the decision in terms of whether, and how to intervene appropriately. The Practice and Professionalism section relates to all activities subsequent to that decision, ie the skills relating to practical adjusting, practice management and life long learning.
