Veterinary Parasitology's core course is concerned with the fundamentals of the morphology and developmental cycles of the helminth, arthropod and protozoan parasites of animals and those which are transmissible from animals to man. The epidemiology and control of the infections is stressed along with the pathogenesis, pathology and immunology. The lectures are supplemented by demonstrations of living and fixed materials and by exercises in identification and diagnosis.
