In doing so, we aim to train the “One World, One Health” specialists needed in our rapidly changing and global environment. 
The programme is notable for the multidisciplinary nature of the teaching involved and the use of innovative educational methods. These include crossover case studies, e-Learning, contributions from professionals, ‘hands-on’ laboratory-based training and internships. [-]
