Expanding the Undergraduate One Health Program
With a vision to expand the One Health Program, the Faculty of Science, the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, and the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine (One Health) brought their expertise together to develop and officially launch the undergraduate One Health Major in the fall of 2021. Students will be required to complete the One Health Major in combination with another Major in an Honours Bachelor Degree (Double Major).
This One Health Major will allow students to use an interdisciplinary approach, combining expertise from other disciplines to acquire the knowledge and skills required to tackle complex multifactorial health challenges, and responds to the increasing local, national, and global demand for creating a workforce able to use the One Health approach.
Establishing this new program was a tremendous accomplishment, made possible through the tireless work and contributions of Dr. Lisa Cameron (PaLM) and Dr. Stephanie Frisbee (PaLM), in close collaboration with Kathy Boon (BMSUE Coordinator at Schulich), and with the support from Dr. Subrata Chakrabarti (PaLM Chair) and Dr. Francisco Olea-Popelka (One Health Chair).
