The Veterinary Hospital facilities allow students to do practical training in a real environment,
The Veterinary Hospital consists of around 3,000m2
The Veterinary Hospital is divided into a clinic floor and another to support diagnosis
The ‘Learning by doing’ methodology is one of the hallmarks of Universidad Europea, as well as introducing students to the professional environment, so the Veterinary Hospital plays a key role in training students for professional clinical practice.
It is equipped with state-of-the-art technology - it is the first university hospital to use high-field MRI - and spaces that make it a leading hospital in the field of veterinary care for small animals. It is a cat-friendly hospital suitable for exotic and large animals and care has been taken to adapt spaces so that they can be better used for teaching, with observation rooms built into consultation rooms and operating theatres, and for talking to and supporting owners, with the bereavement room and program. It will also have the help of the professional laboratories run by the Center for Applied Animal Research when making diagnoses, which are located on the top floor of the hospital building and cover all clinical needs.
Patients will have access to specialists and diagnostic tests from all specialist veterinary fields, accompanied by students who enjoy the hands-on professional experience.
The Veterinary Hospital facilities allow students to do practical training in a real environment, taught by the best professionals while they work, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The facility was built with good clinical practice, animal welfare and the ability to manage the quality of veterinary services in mind. This is what makes our hospital the leader in Emergency and Hospitalization Services, as well as able to cover the main specialist veterinary fields: general medicine, hospitalization and ICU, general surgery, traumatology, odontology, reproduction, neurology, dermatology, cardiology, internal medicine, ophthalmology, oncology, urology, physiotherapy and clinical and image-based diagnosis.
The Veterinary Hospital facilities enable students to carry out clinical internships in all subjects related to this specialist clinical field, either in the professional rotation program or in specific subjects related to small animals, exotic animals and horses, without forgetting subjects as specialist as Emergency and Hospitalization Services, Physiotherapy, Business Management or Advanced Image-based Diagnosis using endoscopy, ultrasound, radiology, CAT or MRI scans, among others. Furthermore, the laboratories at the Applied Animal Research Center can be used for professional internships, both in the professional rotation program and in subjects related to Veterinary Research and Clinical Diagnosis.
The Veterinary Hospital is around 3,000 m2 in size, split into a clinical floor and a diagnosis support floor, belonging to the Center for Applied Animal Research.
The clinical floor is in turn subdivided into the small and exotic animals zone and large animals zone, both of which have direct access to the image-based diagnosis area which uses CAT and high-field MRI scans.
Small and exotic animals zone: this has an admissions and triage area for assigning animals either to the infectious diseases area (which has consultation and hospitalization zones), the large area for emergencies, treatments and general hospitalization, or the one specifically for cats, or even to one of the waiting rooms (general or cat-friendly). Each hospital area has its own space for outdoor recreation. Animals will be called from these into one of four fully-equipped consultation rooms (one of which has an observation area) or the chemotherapy and treatment area or the physiotherapy area (with an indoor and outdoor space). We also have a zone for animals being prepared for and recovering from surgery, connected to two operating theatres with observation areas, one of which is connected to the radiology room. This room is adjacent to the high-definition ultrasound room and the CAT and high-field MRI zone.
Large animal zone: this will have an unloading bay, a big area for examining large animals, a cushioned anesthetic induction and recovery zone, operating theatre and four hospitalization boxes, two of them connected to improve the stay of mares with foals.
Diagnostic support unit
The diagnostic support unit has a technical area, research area, microscopy and histology room, a large clinical biopathology lab subdivided into work areas (biochemistry and protein electrophoresis, hematology, parasitology and ELISA zones), a molecular biology lab and separate microbiology lab.
This area provides the hospital with laboratory support when making diagnoses, covering almost 100% of its needs, as well as offering an external service to companies and research projects.
Both the equipment and design of the facilities and the expertise of its staff is aimed at dealing with the wide range of tests needed and species to be analyzed, as well as for making quick diagnoses, covering domestic, exotic, livestock and wild animals. And always in line with the “One Health” philosophy, with its all-encompassing vision.
