Faculty Day Programmes

 

Brief history of Faculty Day
Faculty Day of the amalgamated Faculty of Veterinary Science reflects a proud tradition, which had been nurtured by the original faculties of Veterinary Science of both Medunsa and the University of Pretoria, of showcasing the research activities of staff and students on a special, dedicated occasion. Since the inception of the Faculty of Veterinary Science at Medunsa in the early 1980s, the staff, and later students, were involved in the activities of the “Academic Day”, which was aimed at highlighting the research activities of the University, as well as exposing young researchers to a conference environment. The Faculty of Veterinary Science of the University of Pretoria at Onderstepoort followed this trend shortly thereafter and the first “Faculty Day”, which focused on the research activities of the faculty, was held on 5 September 1984, sponsored by the then Dean, Prof JMW le Roux. The combined research skills of the two original institutions are today reflected in the proceedings of the Faculty Day held each year in the spring at the Onderstepoort Campus.
