Enroll in Introduction to Veterinary Science with Dolphin STEM Academy

Course Overview

This one-semester course is intended for you to familiarize yourself with the knowledge and skills
required for a career in the veterinary industry. This course has 13 lessons organized into three
units, plus three Unit Activities. Each lesson contains one or more Lesson Activities.

In the Introduction to Veterinary Science course, you will explore the history of veterinary
science, and the skills and requirements for a successful career in the veterinary industry. You
will also explore the physiology and anatomy of animals, learn how to evaluate their health, and
determine effective treatment for infectious and noninfectious diseases. Additionally, you will
learn about zoonotic diseases, and the impact of toxins and poisons on animal health.

Your teacher will grade your work on the Unit Activities, and you will grade your work on the
Lesson Activities by comparing them with the given sample responses. The Unit Activities
(submitted to the teacher) and the Lesson Activities (self-checked) are the major components of
this course. There are other assessment components, namely the mastery test questions that
feature along with the lesson; the pre- and post-test questions that come at the beginning and
end of the unit, respectively; and an end-of-semester test. All of these tests are a combination of
simple multiple-choice questions and technology-enhanced (TE) questions.

Trace the historical events and current trends in veterinary science.
