The Flamingo Fall Time And Other Stories: My Rotation Of Medical School At Miami Zoo | FIU News

June 19, 2021

“Michael Valente graduated from FIU Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine (HWCOM) in April. Next month, Dr. Valente completed his pediatric residency at Nemours Children’s Hospital in Orlando. Here he shares his experience during a recent clinical pilot rotation at the Miami Zoo. And he explains why understanding animal health is important to human health. The zoo internship is now a recognized elective at HWCOM.  … I hope this relationship between the FIU Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine and Miami Zoo encourages future doctors to think about One Health and incorporate it into their practice. It was an honor and privilege to work with the Miami Zoo team to develop and control this revolutionary rotation. I’m really excited to see the impact it will have on future medical students at the FIU.”

To Improve Global Health Security, We Must Not Abandon Tackling Existing Epidemics

June 13, 2021

OPINION

“… We welcome the focus of world leaders on One Health, which is a collaborative effort to achieve health for people, animals and the environment at the local, national and global level. We urge G7 leaders to go a step further, beyond focusing on zoonotic diseases and antimicrobial resistance, which simply isn’t enough to truly build pandemic preparedness.

Future health threats could develop from different origins, patterns, nature or impact. All aspects of One Health must be included if we are to improve global health security, including tackling other diseases, such as NTDs. …”
