Veterinary Pathology

Program Information
Faculty: College of Graduate Studies and Research
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Veterinary Pathology and Pathobiology (Cert., MS, PhD)
Description In the M.Sc. program, students learn the processes of science at an introductory level by doing research that largely has been designed by someone else. Full independent research is not expected. Skills and knowledge to be acquired include laboratory techniques, gathering and analysis of data, writing and publication, use of the library, broad knowledge of the subject area with some specific in-depth knowledge. The M.Sc. student is not expected to be the expert in the research topic at the end of the program. All M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs for students with D.V.M. degrees (or equivalent) should include approximately one full year of experience in diagnostic veterinary pathology (clinical or anatomic) and this should be the first year of the program. Thereafter, diagnostic work would not necessarily form a part of the program, although a reasonable knowledge of diagnostic pathology is expected in the Comprehensive Examination for the Ph.D. Students without D.V.M. degrees should spend their first year learning general pathology and similar relevant biomedical knowledge (immunology, for example), so that they have the background necessary to undertake research in some area of pathology.
