The Veterinary Public Health specialization within the MPH program (MPH-VPH) at Ohio State provides students with the public health credentials to serve as leaders in zoonosis prevention and control programs in the United States and around the world. The students will gain an understanding of the epidemiology and ecology of zoonotic and foodborne diseases in pet animal, livestock, and human populations. Students also learn about animal population systems, including the roles of companion and food-producing animals in society, food production and distribution systems, food safety and food security, and intervention strategies.
