The Out-patients’ clinic

In-field classes in the Out-Patients’ Clinic take place in the 10th and 11th semesters of the integrated under-graduate and graduate course in veterinary medicine.  Classes are organized on the principle of clinical exercises, which means holding classes in groups of on average six students under the supervision of the teachers from the clinic included in teaching this subject.  The emphasis is on the individual work of students, in order to achieve the goals and skills of this subject as well as possible.

Cooperation with veterinary organizations and the number of patients treated in in-field classes led to the conclusion that the conduct of in-field classes must be raised to a higher level.  Therefore, the Faculty administration provided new vehicles for transporting small groups of students for the 2017/2018 academic year.  These are four OPEL VIVARO 1.6 CDTI vans, which are able to transport up to eight people. Each clinic that participates in the Out-Patients’ Clinic classes was given one vehicle and equipped it for in-field classes according to its particular field of work.  This form of running classes resulted in an almost 100% increase in the number of patients treated and more intensive individual work by students.  In addition, another positive aspect is the increasing number of teachers who drive these vehicles, transporting students to their in-field classes according to the previously agreed clinical cases in the field.

Clinical cases are arranged on a daily basis with the designated staff of veterinary organizations, which has become the regular rhythm of the Out-Patients’ Clinic.  The active staff of the Out-Patients’ Clinic, in order to ensure the best quality and certainty of classes, has been supplemented by a coordinator of professional clinical work at the out-patients’ clinic.  Tomislav Bosanac, Dr. Med. Vet, has been employed in this post for the sake of better communication with veterinary organizations, and finding interesting cases, with the emphasis on farm animals.  The running of the classes also includes keeping a Log of the in-field classes of the Out-Patients’ Clinic, in which students describe and monitor the patients treated, given to them by the relevant teacher.  The teacher signs the Log to verify each individual visit, the goals, and skills practised or the number of procedures the student performed independently.

This form of work has greatly improved the classes and cooperation between the Veterinary Faculty and the veterinary organizations with which in-field classes are held in this subject.
