The Veterinary Public Health Management (VPHMgt) program offers three nested award courses at Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma and Masters levels, specifically designed to equip professionals with particular expertise in aspects of veterinary public health relevant to their current and future employment in the national and international animal health arena.
