In the framework of the continuous trial of College of Architectural Engineering at Kingdom University to engage with the community, a project aiming to design a specialized veterinary hospital is offered to the students in the fourth level. In order to proceed in the design process, students had to visit a real Veterinary clinic to raise their awareness of different departments such as Emergency and Accidents (E&A); Operation Theatre; Intensive Care Unit (ICU); Central Supply and Sterilization Unit (CSSD); Clinics; Radiology; Laboratories; Pharmacy; and Kennels. Students needed also to know about the relationship between previous departments as well as the technical considerations incorporated in such departments.
A site visit to Bahrain Veterinary Center, Budaiya was held Wednesday 21st of November, 2018 at 10:00 AM. Dr. Mohammed (senior veterinarian) accompanied the students and Dr. Sherif El-Wageeh while visiting different sections.
Students had the opportunity to visit all the sections of the vet. They took notes on the spatial and technical requirements of different departments while listening to Dr. Mohammed’s guidance. The tour started with the reception lobby, then the diagnosing rooms and pets’ grooming section. In the upper floor, students saw the kennels, laboratory, and radiology, and took notes about types and sizes of different equipment in both sections. Dr. Mohammed, then, showed the Central Supply and Sterilization Unit (CSSD) to the students.
