This activity teaches comparative physiology in the animal world by introducing groups to different real animal specimens. The session is split into two activities; a hands-on quiz in our anatomy museum conducted by the Head of Anatomy Mr Andrew Crook MBE, and an opportunity to explore physiology in context with our live calves, where groups can learn stethoscope skills and bovine adaptations.
Important: Animal welfare is paramount at RVC: if our calves are not available the second activity is a campus tour and directed learning session where students work through a real clinical case study, to understand how a veterinary team solves animal health issues.
