General terms

 Preamble

The course of studies of veterinary medicine serves as scientific and practical education for the veterinary profession in all its specialties. This course of studies should impart well-founded fundamental knowledge in all fields of veterinary medicine and confer competence and problem solving in capacity by means of practice-oriented instruction. More comprehensive education in a field of the student’s choice is to relay practical and specialized knowledge beyond the general requirements. This should render graduates capable of practicing their profession by supplying them with a better start into their field of specialization.

The qualification profile of graduates of veterinary medicine describes the intellectual and practical qualifications as well as social skills necessary to attain professional competence and conveys the absolute necessity of post-graduate continuing education.
