Veterinarians play a crucial role in the food chain, and training in ‘farm to fork’ food production is vital for national food security and public health.
This microcredential is designed for veterinarians to learn how they can work to ensure food hygiene and safety through sustainable livestock production.
Led by experienced veterinary educators in farm animal health and welfare and public health, you’ll increase your knowledge and awareness of key national and global threats to animal food production and food security.
As you explore the past, present, and future challenges to the health and welfare of livestock, you’ll consider the threats of antimicrobial resistance, epizootic diseases, emerging infectious diseases and animal welfare challenges.
You’ll appraise strategies to proactively improve food safety and to protect the food supply chain through preventive veterinary medicine.
You’ll also reflect on your professional practice and identify how to create opportunities to better serve your clients throughout the food supply chain, improving both animal and human health.
This microcredential meets the standards set by the Common Microcredential Framework.
