Pathobiology (PATB) Courses at The University of Wyoming are taught by faculty members in the Department of Veterinary Sciences. Some PATB courses are cross-listed or taught under Microbiology (MICR) or taught in the WWAMI program.

The Department of Veterinary Sciences and the Department of Animal Science have combined their efforts to offer B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in animal and veterinary sciences (see listing under this title). Several options within the major are available including preveterinary medicine and animal biology. Undergraduate course offerings of the Department of Veterinary Sciences are listed under the title of pathobiology and were designed to familiarize students with the principles of animal disease and the basic biological and biomedical sciences.

The department operates the Wyoming State Veterinary Laboratory, an animal disease diagnostic laboratory. This laboratory provides excellent hands-on experience for students interested in animal care, laboratory procedures, and research. Excellent faculty advisers are available for students interested in preveterinary medicine, microbiology and animal biology.

Students interested in graduate degree programs involving research in domestic and wildlife disease problems or parasitology should consult Graduate Education.
