Veterinary Reproductive Biology
The first two-thirds of this course concerns itself with basic physiology o the
reproduction process and is co-taught with the natural scientists. The other third is for vet students only – it allows students to apply their knowledge to the variety of domestic animals.
There are 24 Reproductive Biology in total. Fifteen lectures are given with the Natural Scientist students and 9 lectures are for Vet students only. There are a total of 6 Vet student practicals. The course has been designed so that there are plenty of animal examples throughout. For these examples, Vet students and supervisors should refer to the recommended animal textbooks (Reproduction in Farm Animals, Hafez & Hafez, 7th ed, 2000,ed, Lippincott & Wilkins; Fetal Growth and Development, Harding & Bocking
(editors), 1st ed, 2001, Cambridge Univeristy Press: Reproduction in Mammals, Austin & Short (editors), 2nd ed, 1984, Cambridge University Press), and handouts from the vet repro lectures and practicals.
