    Student experience

    Through networking opportunities and experiences gained in the MVPH program, Dr Hall joined the Department of Environment and Primary Industries, and is now District Veterinary Officer – Loddon Mallee for the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources. Sarah Hall discovered her interest in emergency animal disease response while working as a mixed practice vet near Bendigo, Victoria.

    “This course has given me the opportunity to focus my interests in emergency animal disease and made my transition from private practice to government work possible. “I find the course complements my role as a District Veterinary Officer, and continues to provide me with opportunities in furthering my knowledge of EADs and their management. “Australia’s EAD response plans call for the rapid detection, diagnosis and control of foreign diseases. Training in emergency preparedness is crucial to ensure that we respond appropriately and minimise the potential impacts of such animal disease incursions.”
