One Health Summer Course - Application deadline April 1, 2016 - Wednesday, January 06, 2016

University of Copenhagen

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences

One Health

 Application deadline is 1 April 2016

The international summer course One Health aims to provide knowledge, skills and competences regarding efficient solutions to the multifaceted global challenges to human, animal and environmental health through cross- disciplinary research, education and collaboration between relevant institutions and stakeholders. The summer course primarily focuses on zoonoses, emerging diseases, and emerging health-related problems (drug resistance, toxins, pollution, etc.).

The Summer Course provides insight into and a critical overview of the methods used in the One Health approach by drawing on the successful Danish and/or international achievements characterized by widely cross-disciplinary collaboration between public authorities, public administrations, research bodies and industry sectors.

“Why One Health
The One Health approach seeks to improve the health and wellbeing for humans, animals and the environment through innovative, intersectoral, and interprogrammatic development. One Health not only implies involvement of different sciences, but is also an approach which encourages coordination, communication, data sharing and joint efforts between the involved parties. In many countries, this requires development of new ways of handling challenges such as food security and safety, emerging and endemic zoonotic diseases, antimicrobial and drug resistance, climate change and different types of enivronmental pollutants. Demark has a long tradition of using One Health approaches and is among the world leading in pursuing good solutions to serval of these challenges. Therefore the collaboration between the two universities offers an outstanding environment for the One Health Summer Course.

Human and Animal Medicine to Converge in Philadelphia for Zoobiquity Conference 6 - Saturday, April 2, 2016

Registration Now Open!

[January 15, 2016; Philadelphia, PA] – How does a French bulldog with atopic dermatitis impact human medicine? What can we learn from a feather-plucking parrot? Can a gorilla with heart disease teach us anything about human cardiology? Experts in veterinary and human medicine are often confronted with similar clinical challenges and shared diagnoses. On Saturday, April 2, 2016, they will present results and work in progress from collaborative studies during the Zoobiquity Conference 6. 

Part of a series of nationwide events, Zoobiquity Conference 6 is designed to foster conversations and collaborations that can lead to new ways to diagnose, model, and treat diseases in all species.

General presentation

General presentation of the conference

Organising this One Health Inter-Regional European Conference comes as a natural consequence of the momentum that the One Health concept has gathered for the last couple of years. Romania is truly honoured to be part of the One Health movement and firmly believes that due to its half of century experience in comparative medicine and not only, will have a positive impact on the One Health trajectory.

We invite all professions linked to One Health to attend this Conference, because One Health is best defined with the phrase “It’s all connected!”

The conference will be organised under the auspices of the Federation of European Academies of Medicine (FEAM) by close collaboration of the Romanian Academy of Medical Sciences and the One Health New Medical Concept Association in Romania.
