Veterinary Pathology
General Description
1
Brief History
Department of Pathology of UU Institute of Health Sciences offers MSc training as part of the postgraduate program. The graduates are entitled “MSc of Pathology”. During the MSc training the students are expected to define and diagnose diseases macroscopically and microscopically, inquire information about disease development, and to be able to give diagnosis independently. They are also required to have a multidimensional oversight about problems and collect multidisciplinary information. The students are expected to follow the developing biotechnology and apply biotechnological diagnostic methods. The students have to follow recent developments in pathology, to follow literature, to plan scientific projects in their field of interest and take part in the ongoing projects of the department.

Qualification Awarded
The department offers the second and the third cycles of higher education in terms of ECTS credits (90-120 credits, awarding a Master´s degree). After the successful completion of the program and fulfillment of requirements, a master of science degree in Pathology is awarded.

Specific Admission Requirements
To apply for a Master´s degree with thesis; - Candidates must hold a Bachelor´s degree, and for health sciences, possess ALES (Academic Personnel and Postgraduate Education Entrance Exam) with the minimum acceptable score on sciences determined by the Senate. - Among foreign languages such as English, German, French, Italian, Russian and Arabic, candidates must demonstrate proficiency in a language by satisfying one of the following exams; ÜDS (Interuniversity Foreign Language Examination), KPDS (Foreign Language Proficiency Examination for State Employees), TOEFL or equivalent approved by YÖK (The Council of Higher Education), or the proficiency exam carried out by Uludag University School of Foreign Languages, and provide the minimum acceptable score as approved by the Senate. Recognition of any other foreign language qualifications is dependent on the Senate. - For foreign nationals, admission requirement shall be any of the following; Turkish Proficiency Exam by TÖMER and corresponding ALES score, or scores in exams such as GRE or GMAT, accepted as internationally equivalent by YÖK. - Candidates for Master´s and doctoral programs must possess a minimum score of 55 points in ALES; 50 language points in ÜDS/KPDS/UÜDS or equivalent for Master´s programs, and 55 language points in ÜDS/KPDS or equivalent for doctoral programs. For foreign nationals, a Document by TÖMER certifying the knowledge of Turkish (except for those studying in Turkey) is accepted equivalent to the score of the exams approved by YÖK as an equivalent language proficiency exam. Those who score below 60 points in overall performance are not admitted. In evaluation, the listed exams are responsible for the following percentages: ALES score 50%, Foreign Language 15%, GPA of Bachelor´s/Master´s degree 15%, interview 20%.

Qualification Requirements and Regulations
For the MSc degree, the student has to pass all field and common compulsory courses by receiving at least 75/100 from each course. Institute compulsory course Biostatistics (7.5 ECTS) should be accomplished. The students has to gain a total of 25 ECTS from the field compulsory courses Necropsy and Sampling Techniques, Histopathological Techniques, Host-Agent Interaction and Pathogenesis of Diseases, Inflammation, and Pathology of Urinary System.

Profile of The Programme
During the PhD training, students learn how to gain correct and fast information and how to apply this information to practice. In order to develop investigative character and hand skills, they are expected to take part in experimental studies of the department. Students get courses from other departments to have a wider scientific perspective and to have a multidimensional approach to topics. As an MSc graduate, the student is expected to carry superior skills regarding knowledge level, abilities, scientific understanding.

Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
Master of Science Program at the Department of Pathology is given by two professors, one associate professor and two assistant professors.
Scientific research in Department of Pathology focuses on the diseases of mammalian and avian species. Samples from the field and experimental studies are investigated under in vivo and in vitro conditions. Histochemistry and immunohistochemistry are used for the investigation of both field and experimental samples. Cell culture laboratory is used mainly for in vitro studies and modelling of diseases. The Department also houses a necropsy hall and separate laboratories for histopathology, molecular pathology and immunohistochemistry, and cell culture.
