Diploma Programme

The first refresher course for field veterinarians was offered at the institute as early as in 1900. Due to the pressing and ever increasing demand for trained field veterinarians, a scheme for training the officers from army and civil veterinary departments in comparative pathology, bacteriology and microscopy was launched in 1904. Subsequently, to meet the requirements of the field veterinary officers, this course was reframed and designated as “Postgraduate Refresher Course”. Keeping pace with the newer developments in animal health and animal production activities, the course was subsequently re-organized in 1922, 1930 and 1950. To cater to the need of the on-going changes in the livestock industry and animal husbandry in the country, the PG course was redesigned and designated as “ PG and National Diploma Course”. The courses are continuously updated from time to time. Presently, PG and the National diploma courses offered by the institute are as follows:
