THE UNIVERSITY OF ADELAIDE The School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences

Since its establishment in 1874 the University of Adelaide has been amongst Australia's leading universities. Its contribution to the wealth and wellbeing of South Australia and Australia as a whole - across all fields of endeavour - has been enormous.
Studying at the University of Adelaide means being part of a rich tradition of excellence in education and research, with world-class academic staff and a vibrant student life.
Adelaide has a fine tradition of exemplary scholarship and ground-breaking research, and its unique relationship with industry and other organisations ensures that our research expertise is translated into tangible benefits for the global community.
Adelaide's research is at the leading edge of knowledge, with research earnings consistently the highest per capita of any university in Australia. Analysis of the impact of publications and citations shows that the University of Adelaide is ranked in the top 1% in the world in 11 research fields.
An innovative and forward-looking University, Adelaide has major strengths in wine and food, health sciences, biological sciences, physical sciences, information technology and telecommunications, environmental sciences and social sciences.
At the heart of the University's vision, achievement and impact is our commitment to excellence, our sense that a focus on the experience of the student is fundamental, and our belief that research intensity and innovative, high quality teaching have a symbiotic relationship that underpins and characterises the finest universities in the world.
We are committed to producing graduates recognised worldwide for their creativity, knowledge and skills, as well as their culture and tolerance. Our graduates make an impact on the world. Life Impact.
To be an Australian leader in research and teaching of excellence, unequalled in the positive impact our University has on the lives of our students, staff and alumni as well as the local, national and international community.
The University of Adelaide will build upon its tradition of innovation through high-impact research and excellent teaching across a broad range of disciplines and professions. It will be a growing, internationally focused and financially sustainable institution, enterprising in its approach to new opportunities as they arise but clear and consistent in its essential directions. It will provide a vibrant intellectual environment that will be satisfying for staff and rewarding for students, engendering in the whole University community a sense of pride in our association with the University and in what we do.
The pursuit of excellence in all that we do
The achievement of the vision will require that the whole University community remains committed to the highest intellectual and ethical standards in teaching and learning, research and research training, and the conduct of all our professional activities.
Fairness, integrity and responsibility
The University supports the principles of social justice, equality of opportunity and cultural diversity, and seeks to implement these in the conduct of its activities and relationships. The University of Adelaide has reaffirmed its commitment to a vision for a united Australia, expressed in our July 2003 Statement of Reconciliation.
The rights and responsibilities of freedom of inquiry and expression
Dispassionate, rigorous and honest intellectual inquiry is at the core of academic traditions, and should be reflected throughout our research, scholarship, education and management.
Service to the local, national and international communities
Universities exist by the will of the communities of which they are a part. Shaping, recognising, and responding to community needs and expectations are essential to the mutual obligations that ensue from this relationship.
Innovation, creativity and breadth of vision
The University's core characteristics of research intensity and high quality education across a broad discipline range depend on attitudes that actively encourage the creation of new knowledge and the preparation of students to impact positively at local, national and international levels. These values arise from our understanding of our individual roles within the University and of the community we seek to create.
Welcome to the School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences
The School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences is located on the historic Roseworthy Campus, 53 km north of Adelaide.
We continue to assemble a team of world-class animal and veterinary sciences academics and clinicians. The construction of leading-edge teaching facilities and veterinary hospital continue to invigorate the campus. Ultimately, the facilities will include Centres for Companion Animal Health, Production Animal Health, Equine Health and Rehabilitation of Companion Animals. The first two of these will open late in 2010 along with the Ambulatory services.
The School is developing partnerships with veterinary practices and State Government agencies to allow co-localisation of facilities to enhance the exposure of students to a wide range of veterinary skills and professional practice types.
School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences
We continue to assemble a team of world-class animal and veterinary academics who collectively bring together a wealth of research knowledge and opportunites for the School.
With a strong student focus and teaching excellence, we are developing leading-edge veterinary and animal sciences curricula. The programs focus on educating students for careers across a wide range of animal-based disciplines.
The first third year cohort of students are on board as of late February 2010 and will graduate as our first BSc Pre-Veterinary students at the end of 2010. The clinical component of the program has been officially named the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree and will run for the first time from 2011-13. Veterinary Science training requires completion of both degrees to educate graduates for registration as veterinarians throughout Australia and overseas in countries currently accepting graduates of other Australasian veterinary schools. We now have about 195 students in the Pre-Vet program and close to 180 students in the three-year BSc (Animal Science) program.
In addition to the undergraduate students, we already have 20 honours students and 25 PhD students. By the time we have the full DVM cohort at Roseworthy, we will have in the order of 650 students in the school. We will grow to about 100 staff on the Roseworthy campus, thus thoroughly reinvigorating the campus and becoming the major animal and veterinary research and clinical centre for the State.
The School will deliver its curriculum in an integrated and innovative way. Traditional schools tend to compartmentalise the preclinical and clinical subjects but we are delivering greater integration to allow introduction of clinical examination and basic problem-solving skills at a much earlier stage in the program. Communication skills and critical thinking will be fostered through clinical problem-based learning, presentations and research opportunities.
We are building a public access Companion Animal Health Centre at the Roseworthy Campus as well as new preclinical teaching laboratories with specialised anatomy and physiology areas and a surgical skills suite. In addition, the development of the Production Animal Health Centre housing both the Ambulatory Services, as well as capacity for in-patient production animal care.
The School continues to develop partnerships with veterinary practices and State Government agencies to allow co-localisation of facilities to enhance the exposure of students to a wide range of animal and veterinary skills and professional practice types. We have the South Australian Research and Development Institute’s (SARDI) Marine Biosecurity facility being built alongside the new pathology suite to enhance collaborative research and training in Aquatic Health at Roseworthy.
