This cross-species course provides an introduction to the principles of disease and injury state common to all species. Content in this course is intended to prepare the students for third year DVM medicine and surgery courses.

This course will provide a solid understanding of the common pathophysiological processes for a wide range of topics. The material will be presented from a clinical perspective to enhance material from physiology, anatomy and histology and support other second year material from anesthesiology, pharmacology, pathology and radiology. This will also provide the framework that will allow for improved efficiency and effectiveness of future clinical courses. This course has been approved by the curricular voting body of the CVM.

College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
College of Veterinary MedicineDorman - MBSThe creation of this course was approved by the CVM faculty as part of the curriculum review process. The course augments other courses taught in the DVM curriculum by MBS faculty.
College of Veterinary MedicineJennifer Neel - PHPThis course was approved by the curricular voting body of the CVM and will compliment other courses taught by faculty of the Department of Population Health and Pathobiology and courses taught within year two of the DVM curriculum
College of Veterinary MedicineAdam Birkenheuer-DOCSI have reviewed the proposed course that has been approved by the curricular voting body at the CVM and feel that it is an extremely valuable addition to the DVM curriculum.
This course will be taught by existing faculty in Small Animal, Food Animal, Equine and Special Species Medicine. Specific faculty have not been identified for each lecture. There are many faculty that have expressed interest in participating. All species will be represented and the course will need faculty from all clinical areas to either present topics or assess the students.

The goal of this course is to outline the principles of disease and injury states of systems that are common across all species. This course will provide a solid understanding of the common pathophysiological processes for a wide range of topics and species. The material will be presented from a clinical perspective to link material from physiology, anatomy and histology with clinical disciplines. Material from other second year courses (e.g., anesthesiology, pharmacology, pathology, radiology) will also be integrated, in order to support studentss' development of clinical skills.


Student Learning Outcomes

After being provided the appropriate clinical information, students will be able to:

1. Determine if an animal has prerenal azotemia, postrenal azotemia, acute renal azotemia or chronic renal azotemia.

2. Develop a reasonable differential diagnosis list for common causes of electrolyte and acid-base disorders

3. Develop appropriate fluid therapy plans for common electrolyte and acid-base disorders

4. Identify clinical signs and consequences of common blood disorders and develop reasonable transfusion therapy plans for these patients.

5. Interpret normal and abnormal ECG recordings.

6. Characterize abnormal cardiac sounds.

7. Differentiate between cardiac and pulmonary disease for animals presenting with cardiopulmonary emergencies.

8. Describe the basic steps for cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

9. Develop a list of differential diagnoses, initial diagnostic and management plans for a trauma patient.

10. Identify and describe a fracture; suggest the primary forces that caused it.

11. Describe and understand the application of the various types of bandages, splints and casts.

12. Outline the stages of response to injury and healing of a wide range of tissues and describe how these stages influence clinical decisions.

13. Outline a plan for management of a wound

14. Describe the pathways of pain perception and recognize the clinical signs of pain in a patient.

15. List the potential causes and the stages of progression of osteoarthritis

16. Develop a management plan for a patient with osteoarthritis

17. Explain the indications (pros and cons) for obtaining different types of tissue samples (cytology vs. biopsy) for diagnostic purposes.

18. Describe the diagnostic limitations of molecular diagnostics and determine when a specific molecular diagnostic assay should be used.

ghodge 8/25/2015: this course is ready for review by ABGS. Department needs to correct "anticipated Enrollment"

ABGS Reviewer Comments:
-Anticipated enrollment looks like 2 students per year and 13 sections per semester. Department mistakenly listed 13 (weeks for the course) and 2 (hours per week). Corrected to show 1 section per semester with 100 students per section.
-Note that the consults were from other departments in CVM
cmfreem2 (Wed, 18 Mar 2015 14:59:45 GMT): Rollback: This is Catherine Freeman and I am testing the workflow to be sure email is working correctly. You should receive an email and then click on link in email that will take you to the action in CIM to review/approve.
sljones (Thu, 23 Jul 2015 14:43:55 GMT): Rollback: I am not the appropriate person to approve this, it is a DVM course not a Graduate course.
sljones (Mon, 17 Aug 2015 17:11:39 GMT): Rollback: I am not the CVM CC chair, I am the CBS graduate committee chair. I have no role in approving DVM courses.
