Dentists, Doctors and Veterinarians call for the implementation of a One Health culture in undergraduate education
The professional and student organisations representing medical doctors, the dentists and the veterinarians of Europe call on academics and policymakers at national and European level to foster exchanges between medical, dental and veterinary schools under the One Health approach.
The organisations recognise education as the cornerstone to build their common One Health competences. The organisations believe that a true understanding of One Health requires an interdisciplinary approach. The integrated education of all future health professionals is fundamental for tackling current and future health challenges for our society.
Hannah Treille-Amram, from the French Ministry of Health and working in the EU-JAMRAI coordination team, is attending the conference ‘Implementation of One Health in undergraduate education’, held in Paris and which brings together academics, practitioners and students to exchange views on the concept of One Health. The debate identifies challenges and looks into best practices on how to facilitate interdisciplinary education for interdisciplinary collaboration.
