Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Comparative Pathology

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Comparative pathology is the study of the causes and nature of disease processes in animals and humans at the level of organ systems, the cell or subcellular mechanisms. Students learn to design and interpret experiments relating to pathological processes in a variety of animal species. The program is designed primarily for students who have a professional medical degree, i.e., D.V.M., M.D., D.D.S. Without a professional degree, a very strong background in biological sciences is essential. Applicants must obtain sponsorship of a faculty member in the group who will serve as their major professor.
