The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine and Penn’s Wharton School has launched the Executive Veterinary Leadership Program: Making an Impact as Public Health Leaders.
The university says the program combines the knowledge and experience of a veterinary school with that of a business school to take a global view of the leadership roles veterinarians should be holding in the public health arena, not just in their own profession.
“Veterinarians want to be—and need to be—partners for disease control and other major global health, biosecurity and food supply issues; this program is about helping them get a seat at the table,” said Joan Hendricks, VMD, The Gilbert S. Kahn Dean of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
The program, which runs June 7-12, will include the following session topics:
- The Challenge of Critical Thinking and Peripheral Vision
- The Current State of Veterinary Medicine from a Business Context
- Rebranding the Veterinary Profession
- Leading Teams, Challenges and Opportunities for Veterinary Medicine
- Veterinary Public Health
