Veterinary Histology

Dublin Core

Description

The roles of veterinarians in society range from clinician to researcher, food inspector to enlisted military officer. Critical to the educational training of all of these veterinarians is the fundamental understanding of basic anatomy, both gross and microscopic. The knowledge of normal anatomy provides the basis of both physiology as well as pathology. Relating gross (e.g. physical exam findings) or microscopic changes (e.g. surgical biopsy) to specific disease processes first requires firm knowledge
of “normal”; hence, disease is detected as an alteration of normal! Teaching histology in the veterinary curriculum is the challenging process of conveying to the future
veterinarian the clinical relevance of microscopic anatomy, which may not be inherently appreciable
to the first-year veterinary student.
