The UQ Bachelor of Veterinary Science curriculum is designed to encourage active learning by students and this is achieved through a problem solving approach throughout the curriculum. Integration of pre-clinical with clinical disciplines is achieved through a range of approaches to incorporate practical instruction with electronic and on-line media, role plays, and reflective practice. Clinical skills are developed alongside clinical problem solving skills, particularly through the use of case-based learning. Professional development is central to the curriculum and this aspect in particular contributes to the School's Learning for Life project.
