Curriculum Twinning

Disease that can quickly spread across continents due to current trade and travel abilities have made early detection and diagnosis of major pathogens ever so important. Any major disease that threatens one country is a danger to the global community, and only early detection and rapid treatments can control and contain the threat.

As a result, those being trained in the human and animal health sectors should be learning from similar curriculums that will train physicians and veterinarians to be proficient starting on day one after completing their education.

To improve education and training, the Global One Health initiative has partnered with the College of Veterinary Medicine to develop the Curriculum Twinning Program, a three-year project in which faculty from Ohio State and the University of Gondar in Ethiopia have identified curricular targets and outlined methods for enhancing institutional capacity and expertise in veterinary medicine in Ethiopia.
