Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine and Health Universidade Santiago de Compostela
The Doctorate Program in Veterinary Medicine and Health comes from the update of that first Doctorate Program at the Lugo Campus called Introduction to Research in Animal Pathology (1989) to the different state and regional legislation on doctoral studies, and that Its fundamental purpose was to train doctors who could develop the highest academic, administrative and professional positions; This statement is confirmed by the excellent curricula of the doctoral students who graduated from our Department.
The Program trains doctors but also people, who know how to develop in the broad field of Veterinary Medicine, to develop their knowledge as well as to obtain new ones in the future, which allow these doctors to be leaders and trusted people in large companies, administration and education. All this is achieved by making the search for general and specific knowledge attractive, stimulating criticism and seeking solutions to the problem formulated. All of this is based on communication and mutual respect, teacher - doctoral student, and as is normal in the curriculum of each of the teachers that make up the teaching staff of the doctorate, recognized for its extensive research, teaching and care merits.
