Inside Veterinary Preventive Medicine and Public Health

Veterinary medicine plays a crucial role in the health of populations and focuses on infectious diseases that are transmissible from animals to humans. Preventive medicine deals with food supply protection as well as the prevention and control of zoonotic and animal diseases, such as West Nile virus and avian influenza. Public health involves implementing programs and monitoring diseases within human and animal populations.

These veterinarians are involved with areas such as food safety, public policy and animal production. Graduates work as public health specialists in different areas, including private industry, government and academic settings. Potential employers include the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the U.S. Public Health Service. Some veterinarians go on to fellowships in preventive medicine and public health after earning graduate degrees, and all are required to obtain licensure to practice veterinary medicine.
