Certificate in One Health – University of Florida (USA)  Certificate Overview “Emerging infectious diseases and food safety problems are increasingly recognized as global and regional issues, with potentially serious impacts on human health, animal health, the environment, and national economies.  Often these problems are difficult to control because they require interdisciplinary and international partnerships and there are many barriers to such collaborations.  The One Health approach seeks to break down those barriers and to engage public health, veterinary health, and environmental health professionals in problem solving.  The One Health approach has been endorsed by numerous professional organizations and institutions. It is considered the best way to tackle some of today’s most troubling problems. The primary purpose of this Certificate is to provide One Health training to public health, veterinary health, and environmental health professionals and students who wish to follow such careers. This Certificate was designed to support companies, organizations, and governmental agencies in providing such One Health training to their employees and international partners.   In addition to the knowledge individual students gain, the Certificate will increase the professional capacities of their organizations and often improve their organization’s international relationships. The University of Florida is one of the first academic centers in the world providing training for the One Health approach.  At present we offer PhD and MHS degree programs with concentrations in One Health.  This certificate program would be the third level of One Health training.” ...
