The Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine programme at CityU will cover the range of species required for international accreditation and extend to also cover fish and marine invertebrates. Coverage of horses is essential, and for all students it will begin with basic horse handling skills in first year and progress through to an equine medicine component in the clinical rotations.
The School of Veterinary Medicine has established a relationship with one of the local riding schools that will extend to a physical presence and the infrastructure required for undergraduate teaching. An equine hospital will be constructed that would include a surgical suite and would also serve as the base for an equine ambulatory service to other riding schools. All of the equine-related facilities and services would be established after close consultation with the Hong Kong Jockey Club.
