Preventive Veterinary Medicine

Using state-of-the-art methods in epidemiology, the Preventive Veterinary Medicine Program prepares veterinarians to investigate and evaluate disease and production problems in animal populations and to design, evaluate, and implement disease control or other veterinary services programs. Faculty in the School of Veterinary Medicine and other collaborating faculty carry out research on a wide variety of animal diseases, on microbial and parasitic zoonoses, veterinary public health, food and water-borne infections in humans, wildlife diseases and wildlife management, animal health economics, animal production, biostatistics, veterinary medical data management, and computer applications in veterinary medicine. The one-year program involves course work, a research project, and a series of electives, which permit the student to select one of the areas of emphasis in population health, food safety, public health and zoonoses, wildlife disease and ecology, ecosystem health, international health, or independent study.
