The overall purpose of the MAN-IMAL training programme is to encourage students from different fields of study to work together for our global health - and this from the very beginning of their studies.
In our partner institutions students start to learn from their first years of studies about the numerous links between human health and animal health. Beginning from undergraduate programmes, different in each partner institutions, they will have access to cross-disciplinary study modules built around the triad animal-man-food.
At the Bachelor level, these important basics will give students the possibility to better understand the complex environment of health and food risk management. The lessons clearly show the importance of a cross-disciplinary cooperation.
After their first years in medical or pharmaceutical studies, veterinary studies, life sciences or food-processing and agricultural studies, some students will pursue their studies towards a Master’s degree.
Some examples of undergraduate modules:
- E-learning on the use of antibiotics
- E-learning on the link between Food and Health
- Videos on good practices in food processing
- Cross-disciplinary conferences
- Group assignments...
