The new College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences at City University of Hong Kong in collaboration with Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine is assembling an outstanding group of international academics to undertake teaching and research within the Department of Infectious Diseases and Public Health.
This academic unit is rapidly developing as an international research-orientated centre to support veterinary training and research in Hong Kong and the region.
The Department is well positioned to provide a strong link between the preclinical veterinary sciences and applied (clinical) veterinary medicine.
In another dimension it focuses on One Health, an area spanning the health of animals, humans and the environment. The Department plays a key role in teaching students in the Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine programme and also in the MSc in Aquatic Production and Veterinary Health, amongst other related activities, such as enabling postgraduate research opportunities.
Departmental staff members undertake teaching, research and diagnostic service across their areas of specialty.
