The world's largest faculty of veterinary medicine”
A complete and total update in Epidemiology in Animal Health with the most complete and effective training program in the online educational market"
The Postgraduate Certificate examines the concepts, definitions and epidemiological tools that allow the professional to consider the uniqueness of epidemiology as a science and its usefulness as a tool in veterinary health management.
It examines the concepts and relevant aspects for the design of veterinary epidemiological studies, the identification and analysis of infection-disease patterns and the identification of causes, associated factors and risk factors.
It brings a multidisciplinary vision to Epidemiology, allowing for the understanding of tools and acquisition of skills for data analysis in Epidemiology and for the spatial analysis of the distribution and dispersion of infection/disease.
In the course we cover the design of Preventive and Control Strategies for infectious and pathological processes in animals based on the knowledge of the epidemiology of these processes.
It projects a holistic view of Veterinary Health Management in an ever-changing world.
The purpose of the Module in Animal Health Epidemiology is to achieve a theoretical-practical specialization that allows professionals to develop their autonomy in Epidemiological Analysis focused on veterinary health prevention and control.
Through studying this course, the student will gain satisfaction in being able to apply the theoretical knowledge they acquired in concrete practical cases.

A complete training program that will allow you to acquire the most advanced knowledge in all the areas of intervention of a specialized veterinarian"
Our teaching staff is made up of professionals from different fields related to this specialty. In this way, we ensure that we provide you with the most innovative training we are aiming for. A multidisciplinary team of professionals trained and experienced in different environments, who will develop the theoretical knowledge in an efficient way, but above all, they will bring their practical knowledge from their own experience to the course: one of the differential qualities of this training.
The efficiency of the methodological design of this Postgraduate Certificate, enhances the student's understanding of the subject. Developed by a multidisciplinary team of e-learning experts, it integrates the latest advances in educational technology. This way, you will be able to study with a range of comfortable and versatile multimedia tools that will give you the operability you need in your training.
The design of this program is based on Problem-Based Learning: an approach that conceives learning as a highly practical process. To achieve this remotely, we will use telepractice learning: with the help of an innovative interactive video system, and learning from an expert, you will be able to acquire the knowledge as if you were actually dealing with the scenario you are learning about. A concept that will allow you to integrate and fix learning in a more realistic and permanent way.
With the experience of working professionals and the analysis of real success stories, in a high-impact training approach"
With a methodological design based on proven teaching techniques, this innovative course will take you through different teaching approaches to allow you to learn in a dynamic and effective way"
The contents have been developed by different experts, with a clear purpose: to ensure that our students acquire each and every one of the skills necessary to become true experts in this field.
A complete and well-structured program that will take you to the highest standards of quality and success.
A comprehensive teaching program, structured in well-developed teaching units, oriented towards learning that is compatible with your personal and professional life"
