The Master of Veterinary Studies (Conservation Medicine) can be undertaken by distance education or at the Murdoch University Campus. This program is available to veterinarians resident in Australia or overseas. The program is offered on a full-fee paying basis only.
Conservation medicine is an emerging discipline that involves the integration of veterinary science, conservation biology and public health in order to: advance biodiversity conservation; address issues associated with the inter-relationships between human, animal and ecosystem health; and study the effects of global environmental change on these health inter-relationships. There is increasing recognition that veterinarians have an important role to play within interdisciplinary teams working on environmental conservation projects.
The Master of Veterinary Studies (Conservation Medicine) will provide veterinarians with training and expertise, which can be applied in private practice, zoos and wildlife conservation projects. The program may be entirely coursework based or may involve a placement with a conservation project either in Australia or overseas.
