Bacteriology and hygiene Cleaning and disinfection Parasitology Virology Immunology Hematology Pharmacology
Have knowledge of the main microorganisms (viruses, bacteria and parasites) and knowing how these infects between animals, and furthermore how zoonotic agents can be transmitted between animals and humans Have knowledge about appropriate strategies for sampling and analytical procedures to detect microorganisms in animals. Explain the importance of cleaning, disinfection and hygiene to prevent transmission of infectious diseases between animals, and between animals and humans. Be familiar with the main principles of how the immune system works Be familiar with the most common drugs used in animals Have knowledge about basic pharmacological terminology Handle animals with infectious diseases and implement hygiene measures to prevent the spread of infection Inform animal owners about vaccination procedures and parasite treatments Handling blood samples in such a way that the results of blood analyses (hematological, biochemical, immunological parameters) are representative Perform simple analysis to detect endo- and ectoparasites Handle microbiological samples in such a way that the test results are representative Handle pharmaceuticals in a proper manner.
Teaching in infection biology is an integrated part of six subjects, while pharmacology will be reviewed afterwards. The teaching of bacteriology and hygiene, cleaning and disinfection, virology, parasitology, immunology and hematology are partly presented in an integrated manner, and take the form of lectures, courses, groupwork in bacteriology and hygiene and organized study groups. In addition, students will work on projects and present them to the rest of the class and teachers. This task is graded as pass / fail. If a group does not pass their presentation must be revised and presented to the teachers again. The teaching of pharmacology is given in the form of lectures, organized study groups and review of these.
In total the teaching includes lectures, courses, organized study groups with guidance and work on projects, and oral presentation of assignment.
Literature and learning goals is on the block home area on Canvas.
All subjects earlier in the program are recommended prerequisites.
Laboratory courses in hematology, bacteriology and parasitology are mandatory. and together constitute 9 course days. It is mandatory to work with project assignments and presentation of these.
Organized study groups in pharmacology are mandatory.
Ten (10)% absence is permitted with justification / medical certificate. In the absence beyond this, the student must attend next year's courses. In special cases it created a customized program. The student will normally take the exam even though not all the mandatory requirements is approved, but it will not be given credits in the subject until all study requirements are approved and examination has been passed.
Written digital final exam of 4 hours
Reduction of credits:
INFLLDP 10 SP
It will be used a lab coat in laboratory courses
