Education Mission

The purpose of the graduate program in Veterinary Preventive Medicine is to address the continued and advanced needs of animal health professionals. The certificate enables professionals to gain recognition for a skill set that includes epidemiology, risk assessment, production medicine and animal welfare.

A graduate certificate may be used to increase knowledge in a new or emerging area of interest to the candidate. As such it may be used to formally gain recognition for retraining to meet the needs of today’s food production systems.

Also, a graduate certificate provides an introduction to graduate education that enables a candidate to decide if further degree programs are “right for them”. Completing a certificate by distance, allows animal health professionals to try returning to graduate school without leaving a current position or committing to the larger number of credits needed for a Masters (30+ credits) or Doctoral (72+ credits) level program.
