Graduate Diploma in Veterinary Public Health

      What will I study?

      Overview

      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. And you'll meet your future tutors and mentors to ensure you're familiar with the resources and requirements of online learning.

      Curriculumn developed from real-life cases

      The course provides co-ordinated 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.
