The Master of Science in Conservation Medicine is designed to prepare students from varied backgrounds for a career in conservation medicine. This twelve-month program will build upon an individual student's disciplinary strengths, provide foundational knowledge in emerging conservation medicine issues and applications, foster interdisciplinary collaborations, and create opportunities to master and practice skills necessary to be successful leaders in the conservation health arena. Graduates of this program will be uniquely prepared to enter a wide variety of health and policy careers that, increasingly, are being filled by individuals with the broad perspective and interdisciplinary skills that training in conservation medicine provides.
