Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences

This department benefits from the services of a large number of faculty members being active in research and teaching in various fields in Veterinary Sciences including Large Animal Internal Medicine, Small Animal Internal Medicine, Surgery and Radiology, Theriogenology and Reproductive Diseases, Poultry Diseases, Clinical Pathology, and Epidemiology. The well-equipped and large labs support teaching and research activities regarding large and small animals, theriogenology and reproductive diseases, surgery and anesthetics, radiology and sonography, and poultry and clinical pathology. The clinic is now a reference center for diagnosis and treatment of animals and poultry diseases in the region.

To promote and develop its educational and research activities, the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences has established the Ph.D. programs for Small Animal Internal Medicine since 2002, D.V.Sc in 2010, and Clinical Pathology and Surgery since 2012. More
