Profile
Professor Thokozani Hove graduated with a DPhil degree from the FVS, UZ in 2004. Prof. Hove graduated from Bayamo Cuba in 1987. She worked for Government Veterinary Services for six years, five of which were spent in the Protozoology section at the CVL where she gained vast experience on epidemiology and control of tick and tick-borne disease infections affecting animals in Zimbabwe and the region. Whilst at CVL, she also obtained an MSc in Tropical Veterinary Science with the University of Edinburgh (1990). In October 1994, she joined UZ as a Lecturer in Veterinary Parasitology where she has researched widely on parasitic infections of animals in Zimbabwe. She has also served as Chairperson of Department, Dean of the Faculty of Veterinary Science, and has gained ample knowledge on Veterinary Training at tertiary level over the years. Professor Thokozani Hove has so far published 30 peer-reviewed journal articles mainly in the field of Veterinary Parasitology.
