Doctor of Veterinary Clinical Science (DVClinSc)
The program will provide a learning framework for UQ's veterinary residency program that will prepare veterinarians to sit specialist qualification examinations. Candidates will undertake clinical work in an approved veterinary diagnostic laboratory (for pathology residents) or referral hospital to develop their skills to specialist level. This will form the bulk of the requirements for the coursework component of the training program. The research component will provide a research-training foundation for graduates seeking career paths as clinical academics using an evidence-based medicine foundation.
Gatton, UQ’s rural campus, is located in the Lockyer Valley, 87 kilometres west of Brisbane’s city centre, and halfway between Ipswich and Toowoomba. On this sprawling campus, which dates back to 1897, you’ll find world-class teaching and research facilities in agriculture, animals, veterinary science and the environment. It’s also a working farm, with more than 1000 hectares of dairy, pig, crop and grazing units, as well as post-harvest facilities and greenhouses. Gatton’s agricultural learning facilities sit against a backdrop of historical homesteads, sporting amenities, and community fruit and vegetable gardens.
