Why a Practical training?

Exercises allow students to develop their skills and transfer what they have learned in theory into practical application. An important focus is on skills in the acquisition and evaluation of numerical parameters, which make life processes objectively measurable. To consolidate these skills, students carry out numerous experiments on humans, animals, blood and other preparations. In the non-invasive investigations of physiological parameters on living animals, the species-appropriate handling of the animal is an important additional training objective. These examinations are supplemented by virtual experiments on the PC. All exercises are illustrated in an interactive and individually usable tet.folio book. This also makes it possible to cater to the needs of people with specific learning requirements.

Veterinary Medicine

The lecture 'Physiology I' starts in the 2nd semester. The lecture series 'Physiology II' follows in the 3rd semester. In the 4th semester, the block 'Physiology III' is held in close cooperation with the Institute of Veterinary Biochemistry, which covers a variety of clinically relevant topics and is therefore called 'Clinical Biochemistry and Physiology III'. During this time, the series is supplemented by 'Physiological Exercises', in which students are given the opportunity to apply and deepen their theoretical knowledge in practice. The lectures are supplemented by lectures in the 3rd semester, which are small group seminars designed to consolidate the knowledge acquired through attending lectures and self-study. Various compulsory elective courses also provide a broader insight into scientifically and clinically relevant physiological areas.

Equine sciences, agricultural sciences

In addition to the 'Veterinary Medicine' degree program, the Institute is also part of the 'Equine Science' mono-bachelor's degree program also offered at Freie Universität Berlin and implemented at the Department of Veterinary Medicine.

Here, the Institute contributes its expertise to the course on the 'General Health Sciences of the Horse' and the lecture 'Biology of Animals', which is organized by the Faculty of Life Sciences at the Institute of Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences at Humboldt University and  in which, in addition to students of 'Equine Science', students of  'Agricultural Sciences', 'Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences' and 'Teacher training students'. also take part.
