Department of Veterinary biology was established in 2012 based on the merging of 3 subunit departments (Internal medicine – Pharmacology, Pathology – Parasitology, and Physiology – Biochemistry) to meet with the Faculty’s demand on integration and development. Being formed from the Departments having a strong 60 years of history since the early days, the Department of Veterinary bioscience is honored to have a young and dynamic generation of highly trained lecturers being in many developed countries all over the world. Furthermore, the Department also has active participation of many visiting teachers who have solid professional qualifications and experience in the field of agriculture. The department undertakes over 20 subjects in five undergraduate majors (including advanced programs) and seven undergraduate majors
