Research activities at the Department of Equine and Small Animal Medicine are focused on animal health and welfare. Our clinical research concentrates on equine and small animal disease diagnostics and treatment practices, as well as animal welfare research in various species. We actively support the development of models related to translational research in veterinary medicine where animal diseases are used as models for human diseases.

The Department of Equine and Small Animal Medicine coordinates the Doctoral Programme in Clinical Veterinary Medicine under the Doctoral School in Health Sciences at the University of Helsinki.
