Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: VTMED 5100  or permission of instructor. Enrollment limited to: first-, second-, third-, and fourth-year veterinary students or permission of instructor.

L. A. Mizer.

Covers the regional anatomy of several ruminant species using dissection laboratories and lectures. Emphasizes the functional consequences of structural modifications and anatomical features relevant to clinical practice. Correlates microscopic anatomy with gross anatomy when appropriate to relate structure to function and to provide a foundation for later study in pathology. Student dissection material is supplemented by skeletal materials, radiographs, models, predissected specimens, and postmortem specimens. Students are required to complete an independent study project on a relevant subject of their choice. Assessment includes written and practical exam.
