What will I study?
Topics are varied and in-depth - they include: laboratory tests, project management, advanced disease recognition and control, risk communication, epidemiology, selection and evaluation of control options, simulation exercises and preparedness planning.
Hands-on learning that eases into online learning
The first subject will be taught as a short residential course to cover hands-on experience and to personally introduce students to each other. You'll also meet your future tutors and mentors to ensure you're familiar with the resources and requirements of online learning.
Curriculum developed from real-life cases
The course provides coordinated and targeted modules to cover the skills that have been identified from experience in recent animal disease situations. These include the Hendra virus infections and the 2007 outbreak of equine influenza in Australia.
