Cairo University, faculty of Veterinary Medicine

 Cairo University, faculty of Veterinary Medicine

The development of human civilization has been associated with the ability of man to coexist with animals. Whether hunting, nomadic or as a farmer, man realized his need for animals. In the deserts of Sinai or on the banks of the Nile, Egyptians knew a long time ago that human welfare is linked to animal welfare. The scenes on the walls of the ancient Egyptian temples testify to the fact that Egyptians were probably the first to develop the traditions of veterinary care into a science.
The Egyptians of modern history, like the rest of humanity, have developed the ancient traditions of animal care into an organized science. Over 170 years ago (in 1827), and out of a need to stop the bovine plague "rinderpest", the fist veterinary school was established in a place called Rasheed in the north west of the Egyptian Delta. In 1950 the school of veterinary medicine became the faculty of veterinary medicine and became a part of what is now Cairo University.
Today, the faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Cairo University (VMCU), is the oldest veterinary education and services institute in the Middle East. With 20 specialized departments, undergraduates are offered close to 100 courses. This is in addition to four training courses that are required of students during the summer break to provide valuable additional field training.
Students applying for master and Doctor of Philosophy degrees are offered over 210 courses covering all the fine specialties of veterinary sciences. VMCU also offers 113 courses for diploma students.
Please, join us on a tour of VMCU and get a feel for the academic and cultural activities that students get to experience.
The Facilities
At the academic heart of Cairo University are 23 Faculties, of which the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine is strategically located close to the other facilities of Cairo University. Faculty buildings are only 20 minutes away from one of the great wonders of the world (the pyramids of Giza), 20 minutes away from the cultural centers of Cairo and 30 minutes away from rural centers and many industrial animal production facilities.
WMCU is a well equipped campus. It has classrooms, laboratories, research facilities, offices as well as most recreational facilities in 23 buildings. The buildings are nestled amongst shade trees and gardens and surrounded by high walls which provide a studious sanctuary from the busy urban life of Cairo's streets. The faculty's buildings are grouped in two main complexes the details of which will be mentioned as we go through a tour of the academic, cultural and extension services provided by VMCU.
Veterinary Education at VMCU
The teaching staff of the twenty departments of VMCU takes turns in building up the students' veterinary background according to the era's requirements. Therefore, we shall proceed with our tour of life at VMCU in the order that students get to experience. Special emphasis will be put on the facilities and courses of each department where deemed necessary.
Veterinary Curriculum in the First and Second Years
Education in the first two years is oriented to welcome freshmen by a variety of courses that are designed to help introduce them to basic skills that are required for further progress in their academic life and are essential for modern day veterinarians. These courses include English language and medical terminology, an introduction to computers and computer applications in the field of medical sciences, basics in biology, biophysics, chemistry, and biostatistics. In addition to these general courses, there are other introductory courses in the field of veterinary medicine. Here are some details about the courses given in the first two years and the departments offering them.
First Year
Anatomy and Embryology
A good foundation of anatomy, embryology and comparative anatomy is given to VMCU students in the first and second year of veterinary education. All clinical branches and many research careers of veterinary medicine are based on a good understanding of the anatomy of animals. The department is located in the older building complex of the faculty. The anatomy laboratories have been recently renovated and provided with facilities to allow hands-on personal experience for students. The anatomy department's museum has been provided with a glass horse model to facilitate the understanding of how the different systems are organized. The museum houses other models for bovine, ovine, caprine, feline and canine species. Anatomy is a great experience for students. It will also provide the necessary transition from classrooms into the clinic.
Because veterinary sciences deal with the environment that the animals live in as well as the animals themselves, biology is an invaluable component of the curriculum. Taught by specialists from the faculty of science and using the lecture halls and laboratories in the university's main building complex, students spend part of the first year studying the biology of animals and plants that are part of the ecosystem in which animals live. The basic information given in this department will give veterinary students a broader, and certainly a valuable view of life.
Biology does not stand on its own. Basic information in Biophysics provides the required background to understand biological phenomena like nerve conductivity. Biophysics also provides a basic understanding of the instrumentation used in studying biological phenomenon and biological imaging. The biophysics laboratories, located at the faculty of sciences on the main university campus, are another valuable experience in the life of students of the faculty of veterinary medicine, Cairo University.
Diversity in populations, experimental errors and more are some of the topics that freshmen get to study and learn to appreciate. With the explosion in the amount of scientific information, data mining becomes a necessity. Biostatistics is an important part of the faculty's curriculum because of the need of field veterinarians, epidemiologists and researchers to have a sufficient understanding of data analysis and experimental design.
Cytology and Histology
Histology is one of the bases for many branches of knowledge including pathology and immunology. With state of the art teaching microscopes and personal microscopes, students are given an "in-depth" view of the different tissues of the animals they are to provide care for in the future. Those interested in a career in research will be treated to a satisfying student-to-teacher interaction. For those who need to study at there own pace, personal histology slide sets are also made available. Students will find a nice learning environment in the recently renovated histology laboratories.
hemistry (physical and organic)
Another great experience for freshmen and a great asset in the curriculum of the faculty of veterinary medicine is the general chemistry course. Chemists from the Faculty of Science in the main building complex in Cairo University provide the theoretical and practical experience for veterinary medicine students. Each student gets to practice chemical analysis in well-furnished laboratories. The experience provided in these courses will be greatly appreciated by students as they progress to study biochemistry, pharmacology, forensic sciences as well as nutritional sciences.
English Language and Terminology
High school education in Egypt is done primarily in the Arabic language. Therefore, a crash-course in the English language as it is used in the field of science is highly appreciated by students. However, even students with a good English language background will find this course more than helpful when they start dealing with scientific terms. This course is provided to facilitate rapid academic progress by freshmen.
Veterinary Genetics and Genetic Engineering.
From a histological view of life to a molecular view, the students are introduced to the new revolution in science early on. A group of molecular biologist with interests in physiology, biochemistry, immunology, microbiology, clinical pathology and virology work to give freshmen the introductory view they need in this new scientific revolution. Several molecular biology laboratories are made available for interested students. Multi-media instructional capabilities provide the needed view into the science that is usually unseen. This introductory view into genetics and genetic engineering prepares the students for the requirements of modern day veterinarians. Veterinarians have been on the leading edge of discovery and applied science, and the faculty of veterinary medicine, Cairo University, wants to make sure that its graduates will always be on that leading edge.
Second YearAnimal production
Important veterinary experience is transmitted to the VMCU's students through the department of Animal Production, Faculty of Agriculture, Cairo University. This educational experience gives students a sense of the economics of animal production and complexities of establishing an animal production facility. The animal production course is a truly valuable experience when the student if finally a doctor of veterinary medicine and is working in the field.
Biochemistry and chemistry of Nutrition
The most valuable experience for people who have decided to spend their lives looking for answers to complex questions on the molecular level will start from this department. The recently renovated biochemistry laboratories facilitate hands-on experience to students that will be very important in all aspects of diagnostic, clinical, and research laboratory investigations.
Ethology and Management of Animals and Poultry
A good veterinarian will avoid many of the problems facing animal production by having good skills in management-based aspects of the veterinary practice. The department of ethology and management of animal and poultry will provide these much needed skills for VMCU students. The department will also provide important personal safety skills for practicing veterinarians. Whether a veterinarian is performing an operation or simply examining his patients, he will be using the skills he has learned in the department of ethology and management of animals and poultry.
Together with more applied and comparative anatomy, students are introduced to how these organs function in harmony. The physiology laboratories are designed to allow student the opportunity to conduct experiments in small work groups. The practical experience gained from the physiology laboratory is extremely valuable to those that have their minds set on a career as laboratory diagnosticians. It also paves the way for understanding the pathology and pathogenesis of disease. The department of physiology is located in the old building complex. It shares one of the oldest faculty buildings with the department of biochemistry.
Third year
Building on the basics given in the first and second years, students of the VMCU will be gradually introduced to the clinical veterinary sciences by a set of courses designed to ease this transition from the academic.
Nutrition and clinical Nutrition
Correct feeding and food management practices are given to students in abundance. The emphasis on ration types and formulation transforms the practicing veterinarian to a farm manager. Links between the pathology, immunology and nutrition are also being established through the course. The department of nutrition and clinical nutrition is located in the new building complex. Laboratory facilities are adequate and are always being upgraded.
The diversity of animal habitats and the temperate weather in Egypt have encouraged diversity in parasitic life forms. This diversity of parasitic life forms is thoroughly covered by the specialized courses in the department of parasitology. The department of parasitology was the first to introduce smart classrooms in undergraduate education. Staff members have developed a patented e-learning approach for teaching parasitology. The teaching ideas and technology developed by the department have won nationwide recognition because of its utility in teaching for large student groups. Excellent research equipment and satellite links to atmospheric sensors are just a part of the facilities that is available for undergraduate and graduate students in this department.
In the department of pathology the transition from the normal to the abnormal occurs. Gross and microscopical alterations are studied in well-equipped laboratories. The department of pathology also owns a comprehensive collection of gross pathological samples in its museum. Students are given slide sets and ample student-teacher interaction time to allow maximum benefit and a truly enjoyable teaching experience.
The department is also going global; the pathology course is now available on CD or as a web-based course. This will allow a richer and easier teaching experience for third and fourth year veterinary students. Clinicians and laboratory diagnosticians as well as immunologists and microbiologists will find the information provided by this department extremely valuable for their professional career. The completion of the pathology course is given in the fourth year.
Drugs, drug interactions, residues and growth promoters are hot topics in the veterinary practice. Edible food production is highly regulated to minimize the influence of animal treatment on the human consumer. Located in the old building complex but with newly renovated to minimize the influence of animal treatment on the human consumer. Located in the old building complex but with newly renovated laboratories, the department of pharmacology delivers a well-planned set of lectures and practical experiences to both undergraduate and graduate students. The high demand for VMCU graduates from the pharmaceutical industry is a testimony to the value of the course given by the department of pharmacology.
Veterinary Economics and Farm Management
Farm management requires excellent skills in all aspects of animal production. This includes the theory of consumer's attitudes, Market equilibrium, Evaluation of agronomical enterprises and many more issues. Veterinarians' graduation from the faculty will definitely apply the material given in this course by professors from the faculty of Agriculture, Cairo University.
Veterinary Education in the Fourth and Fifth Years at VMCU
By the fourth and fifth year, students at VMCU start to spend more time dealing directly with animals. Most course offered during these last two years of veterinary education are hands-on experiences that are designed to instill the latest in veterinary science and education into our students.
Veterinary Medicine and Infectious Diseases
In the well-equipped clinics and newly renovated animal hospital, students will learn how to read the body language of their patients, "feel" their problems and treat their ailments. This educational experience starts in the Department of Veterinary Medicine and Infectious Diseases. The department is located in the new building complex close to the departments of surgery and Reproduction. The teaching facilities in these departments are equipped with multimedia capabilities as well as sonar and a small clinic laboratory. Special emphasis is given to animals of economic importance like cattle, buffaloes, sheep, horses, camels as well as a variety of pet animals.
Minor surgeries are routinely done under field conditions, contrary to the view that many students have. The courses given in the Department of Surgery gives students the know-how to perform simple field surgeries, as well as other more complex operations. All students get to experience the struggles and triumphs of performing surgery in well-equipped halls with state of the art anesthesia and x-ray equipment. International workshops and complex transplant operations are routinely done in collaboration with colleagues from the department of surgery at VMCU to enrich students' and faculty's experiences.
The core of the animal production industries is reproduction. The faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Cairo University has given special attention to gynaecology, obstetrics and artificial insemination science, clinical cases, simulators, and field trips are used to maximize student experiences in the field of animal reproduction. The facilities of the animal hospital and the Department of Surgery are an added asset to the already well-equipped facilities of the Department of theriogenology.
Poultry Diseases
Poultry diseases are featured specialties in VMCU due to their economic importance in Egypt. The Department of Poultry Diseases provides extensive theoretical and hands on experience to final year veterinary students. The high demand by poultry producers for the department's graduates and services is an accurate indicator of the excellence of the veterinary education provided by that department. Students are given expert advice as they investigate clinical cases in multi-media-equipped laboratories under the supervision of department staff. Special housing for experimental research is also available for the department. This provides interested students the chance to follow up research designed to solve real field problems.
Fish disease and Management
Fish diseases and management is a science that receives special attention in VMCU. The rapid expanse in fish production in Egypt and the world have urged the development of the Department of Fish Disease and Management in recent year. Now, with newly renovated laboratories and a small facility for experimentation in addition to many resources outside the faculty, the department is able to provide great theoretical and practical experiences for veterinary students. The department is located in the new building complex close to the department of poultry diseases.
Clinical pathology
Clinical sciences are supported in the laboratory by a multifaceted view of clinical pathology. Extensive hands-on experience in the updated laboratories of the Clinical Pathology Department located in the new building complex is appreciated by anyone working in the field of diagnostics. The department's staff is particularly focused on clinical hematology, clinical biochemistry and diagnostic cytology.
Veterinary Hygiene and Management
The science of Veterinary Hygiene and Management is essential to the veterinarian. This science is provided by the teaching staff of the department of Ethology and Management of Animals and Poultry to final year veterinary students. The theoretical and practical aspects of these sciences will prove extremely valuable to both the practicing veterinarian and the laboratory diagnostician. For example, the Department of Animal and Poultry Hygiene provides the information needed to design a hygienic production environment for animals housed separately or under intensive production conditions. Staff members from the Department of Ethology and Management of Animal and Poultry are running the specific pathogen free (SPF) Chicken farm in association with staff members from the Department of Poultry Diseases. The SPF chicken unit is a national program that has gained renowned attention in Egypt.
Toxicology, Forensic Medicine, and Veterinary Regulations
The field of toxicology and forensic medicine is extremely valuable to practitioners. Aspects like medico-legal reports, identification of criminal Vs routine work injuries, chemical war gases food poisoning and chemical pollutants will be given is details by the department's teaching staff for the final year VMCU students to complete the picture for the aspiring veterinarians.
Food Hygiene and Control
Many veterinarians occupy prominent positions in the field of human food industry; this is because they are given substantial practical and theoretical background about food hygiene and control in the last two years of undergraduate study. The Department of Food Hygiene and Control is located in the new building complex in the same building as the Microbiology, Ethology and Management of Animals and Poultry, and Parasitology departments. The department's laboratories are designed to allow several small groups of students the analysis of food products the same way they would do it in major food processing plants. The department's staff makes sure there is ample student to teacher interaction time during the laboratory sessions. Students of the VMCU are lucky that way since the department's staff supervise the processing and or safety units in most of the nation's food processing facilities. Great national and international recognition has been given to the department's staff and mission. This recognition has been crowned by the establishment of the Regional Center for Safety and Quality of Food Stuffs (Robert von Ostertag Service Laboratory) in the faculty in 1997.
Finally, and as the veterinarian is ready to embark on his career, the Department of zoonosis provides a focused overview of the pathogens that are transmissible between animals and man. The course also provides information about the methods to control animals and wildlife that help transmit these pathogens.

BCSR is also a leading national center in providing training and workshops in the field of molecular biology and biotechnology. National and international research cooperation opportunities are always available in BSCR.
The Regional Center for Food Safety (RCFS)
The latest addition to the VMCU centers was established in 1997 as a part of an Egyptian-German agreement. The center provides technical consultation and training courses in the field of food safety. It is also responsible for organizing national and international workshops and meetings as well as publish material and provide continues education in the same field.
As a testimony to the scientific activity of VMCU, the faculty is home for seven national and internationally affiliated societies. These societies are the Egyptian Veterinary Poultry Society, the Egyptian Veterinary Pathology and Clinical Pathology Society, the Egyptian Society for Experimental Surgery, the Egyptian Society for Animal Fertility and Reproduction, the Egyptian Society for Nutrition, the Egyptian Association for Immunologists, and the Egyptian Society for Animal Management.
VMCU offers a variety of diplomas, masters and Ph. D. degrees. The diplomas and scientific degrees cover almost all the field of veterinary sciences. The diplomas offered are; diploma of veterinary extension, diploma of artificial insemination diploma of reproduction, diploma of laboratory animals, diploma of wild animals and birds, diploma of fish diseases, diploma of veterinary public health, diploma of birds and rabbit diseases, diploma of clinical pathology, diploma of food hygiene, diploma of animals, diploma of livestock diseases, diploma of veterinary pharmacology, diploma of applied parasitology, diploma of veterinary microbiology, diploma of forensic medicine and veterinary toxicology, diploma of veterinary surgery, diploma of animal waste, and diploma of environmental pollution.
The master's and Ph. D. degrees are offered by the 20 specialized departments of the faculty. Applicants for master's degrees are required to be holders of a Batchelor degree in veterinary science. Those applying for a Ph. D. degree are requited to be holders of a Master's degree in the field they have applied to obtain the Ph D in. A master's degree can be obtained within 3-6 years.
Funding for graduate degrees is provided through departmental or institutional resources. Private research funds can also be used to obtain the scientific degrees offered provided that departmental approval for the research project can be obtained by the applicant and the faculty's administration.
From the establishment of the faculty until 2003, 1028 of diplomas, 1484 of master's degrees and 979 Ph.D. degrees were awarded. This is by far the most any veterinary college having awarded nationwide.
In the field of veterinary medicine, success is sometimes measured in terms of how many problems you were able to avoid. Working with the ministry of Agriculture, and health care providers in the Ministry of Health, veterinarians are able to provide animal and poultry products as well as biological products that are safe for human use or consumption.
To get sense of the national impact of veterinarians, especially VMCU graduates which are leaders of the veterinary profession in Egypt, let us consider the geographical nature of Egypt. The geographical location of Egypt makes it vulnerable for many emerging pathogens. Throughout its history, Egypt has suffered many of such diseases. Veterinarians have managed to limit the impact of the endemic Foot and Mouth Disease, break two waves of the notorious zoonosis Rift Valley Fever, and control Lumpy Skin Disease and sheep pox virus infections and now, we are rinderpest free.
