This course integrates life sciences, social sciences, medical sciences, and the humanities to explore the concept of “One Health”, the idea that the health of the environment, animals and people are all inextricably linked. The course provides a comprehensive framework that will enable students to critically examine their perspectives and expand their view of the world, skills that are essential to a career in interdisciplinary Conservation Medicine. This course is also offered to undergraduate students, and preparatory for a summer course under the Cornell’s Engaged Learning Program.
