PTHB 502 Veterinary Research Investigator I

(1cr. ) (Didactic 0.67 cr./Other 0.33 cr.) The concepts of Evidence Based Veterinary Medicine (EBVM), One Health Medicine, and Public health will be explored in this course, which is the start of a series of 4 terms of mentored research in 28 research groups. During 11 highly interactive lectures it will be shown how research translates into clinical patient care, and how clinical work  relates to research. Frequently used laboratory methods will be explained, and examples from different fields of ongoing research – on campus and abroad – will be given to reflect on understanding. During this course the student will work through all steps of hypothesis driven research, and practice in scientific writing.
