What is the Intercalated BSc Comparative Pathology programme?
This programme is modified from our highly successful Intercalated BSc in Veterinary Pathology programme which ran from 2000-2012 supported by the Wellcome Trust. 124 students completed the original Intercalated Veterinary Pathology Programme, with a 100% pass rate; over 50% of these completing with a First! See Past and Present Students and Degree Classifications.
After graduating from their respective veterinary degrees, the majority of our students have gone on to undertake fascinating post-graduate training that has given them enhanced career prospects. See Post Grad Destinations.
The new programme builds on this successful model but offers an increased choice with a core module in Veterinary Pathology and two optional modules in Infection and Immunity or Comparative Models of Disease.
Pathology, the science of disease, is central to understanding and conduct of veterinary and biomedical research, clinical medicine and surgery. There is a need for veterinary scientists who are trained in pathology and pathology techniques to fulfill the ever growing demand for such expertise arising from clinical practice, academia and industry.
The added value of a focused approach to Comparative Pathology
The intercalated programme is designed to stimulate individual curiosity at the boundaries of research in pathology. It is less structured and more student centred. While veterinary undergraduate courses provides adequate pathologic information to support subsequent clinical studies, this degree focuses and expands on the subject in a way which will support subsequent pathology oriented careers and highlights the relevance of animal models for investigating animal and human disease.
