Professor Dorina Timofte DVM PhD FRCVS FRCPath(Res) ECVM Diplomate

Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Clinical Microbiology Vet Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology


Most of my teaching load is taken up by teaching infectious diseases and clinical microbiology (clinical rotations for 36 weeks each year) and providing a diagnostic clinical microbiology service (year round) fully integrated into clinical teaching.


BVSc programme: years 4-5, BVSC 420, Diagnostic Pathology and Bacteriology Rotation
Small group teaching-average 5 students per week for 36 weeks; Contact time = 288 hours per year.

Dorina is responsible for the design, delivery, assessment and feedback of the Bacteriology part of the Diagnostic Pathology and Bacteriology Clinical Rotation which takes place in the Diagnostic laboratory. The diagnostic activity is essential for teaching veterinary students the practical aspects of clinical microbiology as required by Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
The clinical microbiology experience provided to students on this rotation generates very good feed-back from students, both from weekly feed-back and Focus Groups Feed-back.
Dorina also teaches on Clinical Theory Course (BVSC 410 – 20 students per group – 6 groups)
