Training

 

Part of our mission at the Center for One Health Research is to educate healthcare workers, veterinary workers, environmental scientists, and other who live and work at the human-animal-environment interface about One Health.

ACADEMIC TRAINING:

The Center for One Health Research has a number of ways in which we work with matriculating students at the University of Washington.

MEDICAL TRAINING

The Center for One Health Research also provides One Health rotations for Medical Residents and Medical Students. This clinical elective provides medical residents and students with a conceptual framework and clinical exposure through which to explore the multitude of applications of the One Health paradigm in a multidisciplinary context. Through hands on clinical experience at the Woodland Park Zoo, SR3, Sarvey Wildlife Rehab Center, Harborview Medical Center Occupational and Environmental Medicine Clinic, homeless health care clinics and other sites, residents and students will gain experience working with interdisciplinary teams on species spanning approaches to health.

COMMUNITY TRAINING

In Spring 2018, the Center for One Health Research will hold a one day biosafety skills training about high priority pathogens (bird flu, swine flu, etc.) in animal care settings (poultry, swine, dairy, veterinary, zoo, aquarium etc.). This training will be open to students, WA state employees, poultry and swine producers, veterinarians, etc. 

Skills will include use of PPE, decontamination, and occupational health of exposed workers in the event of a pathogen outbreak.  More information to come.
