1. DEFINITION OF COURSE: Chemistry
2. COURSE IN VETERINARY EDUCATION
Chemistry is the basic subject.
3. PURPOSE OF THE COURSE
The main objective of this course is to introduce students with main principles of that matter, which is necessary for the formation of a modern doctor of veterinary medicine or substance which will serve as the basis of related disciplines.
Practical training aims to introduce students with the fundamentals of general, inorganic and organic chemistry, to gain knowledge about the chemical structure of substances, changes and reactions that are important for veterinary medicine (qualitative chemical analysis, quantitative analytical chemistry acidimetry, alkalimetry, iodometry, argentometry, permanganometers, basic chemical calculation).
Classes are conducted in semester I, with a total of 60 hours of which 30 hours are theoretical lectures and 30 hours practical teaching with students.
Theory lectures: interactive (large group lectures with discussion and engagement of students).
Practical teaching: performed in the laboratory of chemistry, biochemistry and physiology in small groups, where students independently perform various types of reactions and participate in interactive explanation of the principle of reaction and learning the basics of chemical calculations.
