With the rapid movement of people around the world these days, disease can move much more quickly before and is harder to control than ever. In such a world, there is a growing need for veterinary epidemiologists who stand on the front line of disease surveillance.The UK leads the way in this training. In order to meet the demand for skilled professionals, the RVC has developed a unique course, combining the strengths of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) in epidemiological principles and communicable disease epidemiology, and the RVC’s expertise in aspects of animal health and production.
Participants learn from veterinary epidemiologists and policy makers working at the heart of UK government. Students get to learn from the valuable first-hand experience of Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA) staff....

Veterinary epidemiology is a key component in a number of global grand challenges relating to disease control, food security and climate change. Consequently, there is a need to improve our ability to understand, predict and respond to patterns and dynamics of disease and to control outbreaks.
The R(D)SVS and SRUC partnership create the greatest concentration of research power in veterinary and agricultural sciences in the UK. The MSc draws on this wealth of experience and research activity to provide scientific knowledge of the fundamental biological processes (e.g. behaviour, physiology, immunology, ecology) and environmental and farming management practices (e.g. husbandry, nutrition, livestock trade) driving disease transmission, persistence, prevalence and spread in livestock production systems. This enables an in-depth understanding of complex environmental patterns of disease, which facilitates the prediction of disease risk and control. This multidisciplinary systems approach will provide you with the skills to make significant contributions to tackling food security, climate change and disease control in your role as an animal health professional....

This course aims to provide an understanding of the conceptual basis of epidemiology and training in essential methodological skills for the conduct of epidemiological studies in animal populations. This course draws on the combined strengths of the School and the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) in all aspects of animal health and production. It also presents an excellent opportunity to learn from epidemiologists and policymakers at the heart of government (in the UK Government Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and its executive agency, the Veterinary Laboratories Agency (VLA).
There is a shortage of trained veterinary epidemiologists and there are excellent career opportunities in a variety of organisations including Ministries of Agriculture & Food; Veterinary Investigation Laboratories; Animal Disease Research Institutes; Animal Health Trusts; Veterinary Faculties in Universities and International Organisations concerned with global health (DFID, FAO, WHO, OIE etc)....
