MS in Conservation Medicine

Conservation medicine uses a One Health approach to address urgent issues facing our planet, including emerging and resurging diseases, habitat use conflicts, environmental contamination, ecosystem and climate change, biodiversity loss, and ecosystem function degradation.

Gorilla Medicine

These great apes share 98.5 percent of their genes with us—which makes them susceptible to our diseases. Learn how wildlife veterinarians are protecting these endangered animals in Africa.
