Integrating One Health into Veterinary Education at the University of California,

Davis

 

Description

 

This program is intended to promote and integrate the One Health concept into

veterinary training. The main priority of the program is to support students’

pursuit of One Health externships while in school. Plans for the program

include the creation of One Health internships, fellowships, and post-graduate

positions in the discipline, with the aim of transitioning practitioners into One

Health careers. The program plans to prepare the next generation of

veterinarians to meet global challenges by supporting One Health learning

experiences, supporting career-diversity goals within veterinary education,

helping veterinary students secure careers in One Health, advocating for and

supporting veterinarians in rural health and veterinary public health, and

establishing partnerships with physicians, nurses, public health practitioners,

environmental and ecosystem scientists, global educators, and public policy

experts in order to strengthen the One Health goal of transdisciplinary

collaboration.
