Syllabus
Prerequisites: Students are expected to have a sound understanding of anatomy and physiology of gonadal function as well as of physiology of the reproductive cycle of all domestic species as well as of exotic companion and wild animals. Having successfully passed the final exam of the course of Obstetrics and Pathology of Reproduction is a mandatory requirement
Target skills and knowledge: Students are expected to learn the basics of management of the reproductive cycle and how to identify and treat the most common diseases of food animals (ruminants and swine) and horses.
Furthermore, they will be expected to know how to a) monitor
and control the reproductive cycle of bitches,
queens, ferrets and other exotic and wild species, b) perform artificial insemination and diagnose and treat the most common diseases of the reproductive tract of dogs, cats and exotics animal species
Examination methods: Practical, written and oral examination at the end of the course
Assessment criteria: Students will be evaluated relative to their theoretical knowledge but also with regard to their ability to solve the most common practical problems encountered in daily clinical practice (which will be dealt with in class)

Planned learning activities and teaching methods: (clinical path)
lectures = 56 hours
practical = 10 hours
lab = 16 hours

(food safety path)
lectures = 40 hours
practical = 10 hours
Additional notes about suggested reading: A set of Class Notes (written by all teachers of the Reproduction group in 2008) is available for download, which features a great deal of theoretical information useful also for the course of Obstetrics and Pathology of Reproduction (although the Class Notes alone are not sufficient to pass the exam)

Furthermore, students will be provided with all the .pdf files of each lectures

Slides used for lessons will be available on Moodle platform (https://elearning.unipd.it/scuolaamv/).
