The main goal of the degree of Doctor
of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) is
to train students in order to understand
the animal diseases in terms of their
etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis,
treatment, prevention and control.
All the preclinical subjects lay foundation
for the proper learning of applied
sciences, of which, Veterinary medicine
is the most important discipline.
This is because, in the prevailing
conditions of our country, a qualified
veterinarian, in his practical life,
deals mostly with the diagnosis, treatment,
prevention and control of animal diseases.
Thus in practice at least 90 percent
(if not entirely) of the total Veterinary
practice depends upon thorough knowledge
and practical training of veterinary
medicine. Thus practical teaching
of Veterinary medicine is the ultimate
mission/goal of the entire D.V.M.
