Designed to aid States in planning and developing two-year post-high school programs in veterinary science technology, the curriculum guide presents a suggested curriculum for a training program in veterinary science technology, with an option in meat inspection and regulatory technology effective in the fourth semester of the training period. Part 1, Veterinary Science Technology Program, provides general information on the emergence and development of this career, occupational opportunities, type of education needed, and activities performed by technicians, as well as various aspects of the training program. Part 2, Curriculum, outlines the four-semester curriculum and provides brief course descriptions. Adaptations for a cooperative education plan and continuing study are described. Approximately half of the document consists of Part 3, Course Outlines, which offers content, procedures, and resources for the technical specialty courses, auxiliary and supporting technical courses, mathematics and science courses, and general courses. The concluding section covers general planning, land requirements, laboratory facilities and equipment, acquisition of equipment and estimated costs, and a cost summary. A bibliography and a selected list of scientific, trade, and technical societies concerned with veterinary science technology are also included. (EA)
