Code and section: VETM*3410*01

Instructor: firstname lastname


This course is a continuation of the Phase 1 course Health Management I. Previously presented concepts are explored in greater depth and complexity and new material addresses three main themes: epidemiologic principles in clinical decision making, applied ethology and public health. Emphasis is placed on relevant epidemiological tools for understanding disease causation, evidence based medicine and critical appraisal of the literature, surveillance and outbreak investigation. The public health section focuses on regulatory matters, food safety and zoonotic disease issues. Problems associated with animal behaviour and welfare are presented in a species/industry context.
