Doktorandkurs: One Health - concept, cases and methodology

17-27 oktober anordnar SLU Future One Health och institutionen för biomedicin och veterinär folkhälsa vid SLU, tillsammans med forskarskolan GS-VMAS, doktorandkursen One Health - concept, cases and methodology. Vi välkomnar alla doktorander som är antagna till One Health relaterade projekt och residenter inom veterinärmedicin. Kursen hålls digitalt och på engelska.

Course content

We will give a theoretical overview of what the One Health concept is, and why a one health approach is necessary to provide efficient solutions to the global challenges of our time. We will describe the benefits (and drawbacks) of interdisciplinary research and how interdisciplinarity is used in this context. Theoretical lectures will be mixed with presentations of successful one health cases. Methods commonly used within the one health concept will be presented, e.g. including artificial intelligence, epidemiology, bioinformatics, and qualitative research methods.

Participants will present their own research project to the group and after the first course week they will give a second presentation describing how the project could be developed using one health concept and methodology. The second week, students will be divided into groups and given the task to come up with a one health research project, and a skeleton for a research application. The second week will also include lectures on how to write a interdisciplinary research application, with emphasis on impact and communication.

Objectives

After completing the course the student shall be able to:

  • Understand the One Health concept and its interdisciplinary perspectives, and discuss One Health issues
  • Describe One Health cases within various areas
  • Identify important methods used to analyze one health impacts on animal, human and ecosystem health
  • Explain the principles for prevention and control of infectious diseases, food safety threats, antimicrobial resistance and other One Health hazards
  • Understand the advantages and challenges of applying One Health approaches
  • Identify challenges that need One Health approaches to be solved or mitigated
  • Be a valuable collaborator in One Health projects by being aware of the core competences that different participants bring into One Health collaborations
