Visionary One Health Training Programs Planned for University of Florida (USA)


Please see video at



“While many organizations call for a cross-disciplinary One Health approach, there are no US degree programs that teach students to lead these complex collaborations.  Comprised of sixteen different health science, engineering, and agriculture colleges, the University of Florida is uniquely positioned with experts in a variety of fields. To address this need and utilize our distinctive capabilities, the Department of Environmental and Global Health is developing several new training programs.  We are seeking approval to establish three new training programs for Fall 2012:

·                                 Master’s of Health Sciences, Environmental Health emphasis (40 credit hours, approval pending)

·                                 PhD in Public Health, One Health emphasis (90 credit hours, approval pending)”
