Objectives: Become familiar with and develop an understanding of major avian and swine diseases that occur in populations; including diseases of importance to poultry and swine production, with particular emphasis on reportable and zoonotic diseases.


Student Learning Outcomes

Outcomes:



  1. Recognize organ system(s) predominantly involved in diseases based on descriptions of signalment, clinical signs and physical exams.

  2. Develop differential diagnoses compatible with signalment, clinical signs and physical exams.

  3. Develop a plan of diagnostic tests that would most efficiently lead to a definitive diagnosis

  4. Demonstrate an understanding of the most important prevention and control strategies specific to each disease.

  5. Recognize the clinical signs and gross lesions of reportable avian and swine diseases, and know how to report them.

ABGS Reviewer Comments:
-This looks fine; I find it curious that there are no required readings/texts, though. I'm not sure it warrants revisions, but it struck me as different than what I'm used to in courses in our college.
pjcray (Mon, 10 Oct 2016 19:51:33 GMT): It would appear that there should be additional quizzes and/or assignments in lieu of 2 large tests (one at 35% and the poultry at 50%). I strongly believe there should be a minimum of 2 tests prior to a final at a minimum, or one larger one with weekly quizzes. This proposal does not leave the student with any options if they do not test well - and high marks on one large test would suggest lack of rigor.
kenuss (Mon, 10 Oct 2016 19:59:51 GMT): Note: quizzes added to poultry section now, I believe, address Dr. Cray's concerns.
