The Graduate Diploma in Veterinary Public Health Management makes career enhancement easy for busy animal health professionals. With convenient online courses and short residential sessions, this distance degree provides the perfect environment for boosting your skill and leadership across the animal health sciences.
If you're a professional based in a regional or rural centre in Australia, or if you're located overseas, the one-and-a-half-year part time Graduate Diploma in Veterinary Public Health Management will help you advance your career while fitting in with your schedule. This flexible course is delivered largely through distance education units of study, using online classrooms, with three short residential intensive blocks (three to five days in length) during the course. We understand that our students juggle work and family commitments, so this program allows you to enrol in as few units of study as you need in order to make your study manageable.
With its combination of scientific skills and leadership training, this course will turn you into a veterinarian or animal scientists who can benefit the health of the whole community. Through technical training in epidemiology, risk analysis, surveillance, outbreak investigation and data analysis, you will learn to meet the challenges of emerging infectious diseases and zoonoses. And the unique addition of leadership, change management, policy development and project management will prepare you for animal health management careers in government, animal health industries, academia and consultancy.
You will be guided by world-class facilitators who are leaders in their own field. The online format of most of our units allows us to select the best teachers from around the world to facilitate our courses. Our facilitators not only have theoretical understanding of their own field but apply their skills on a routine basis to solve intricate animal and public health problems and are thus able to bring real life experience of problem-solving to the classroom.
