A proposal will be put forward for the establishment of an Undergraduate Certificate Program in One Health. The proposal is being developed with the support of the Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching Effectiveness (GMCTE) through a Curriculum Innovation Grant. Enrollment will be open to approximately 30 students per year with at least 60 credit units of prior university training, that is, those in 3rd or 4th year of a direct entry undergraduate degree program and those in 1st or 2nd year in a professional program. Students will be awarded a Certificate of Proficiency in One Health after completing 12 credit units of core and elective coursework.
It is the goal of the program that on completion, students will demonstrate an introductory level of knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable them to participate effectively in 1.) Collaborative problem-solving, and 2.) Interdisciplinary knowledge integration to address complex One Health issues.
