Veterinary epidemiology


The veterinary epidemiology unit from the faculty of veterinary medicine also participates in education, as basic courses in veterinary epidemiology and animal health economics are part of the curriculum of the bachelor students at our faculty. In the masters these subjects will be further deepened, depending on the choice of specialty by the student. Below you can find links to the course specifications of all the different courses that include veterinary epidemiology and/or animal health economics.
