Massey University offers the only veterinary epidemiology programme in Australasia.
Epidemiology is the science concerned with study patterns of health and disease in different populations, or groups. Group comparison is at the core of scientific methods needed to assess the efficacy of intervention for the prevention, treatment and management of diseases.
Skills in in-depth analysis
When you complete a master’s in epidemiology at Massey University you will gain the skills needed to work at a high level in the field of epidemiology. You will gain skills in critical evaluation of the literature, through to study design and advanced skills in analysis of epidemiologic data.
You will learn how to critically evaluate the literature to make evidence-based decision making in a range of sectors including health and policy. This epidemiology programme will teach you how to design surveillance systems and population studies in order to determine magnitude of health problems. You will be able to identify risk factors, evaluate interventions and gain the skills necessary in advanced data analysis and statistical computing.
Real world learning
You will gain from the Master of Veterinary Studies’ (Epidemiology) emphasis on developing limitative skills through case studies. During your studies you will work with data collected during real epidemiological studies to help you learn how to interpret results in the light of bias, confounding, effect modification and model error.
Gain from our world-leading expertise
Massey University hosts the EpiCentre - the largest veterinary epidemiology training and research centre in Australasia and widely considered to be one of the leading groups in the world. The group has a proven track record with more than 15 years’ experience in education and research.
The EpiCentre is an OIE (World Organisation for Animal Health) Collaborating Centre for Epidemiology and Public Health and the only such centre in the Asia-Pacific region. Therefore, we have are doing research both in NZ and internationally and this gives us a very outward facing program. We have taught students from all over the world and many have returned to do a PhD with Massey.
The Centre works extensively in the development and commercial application of animal health software (DairyWIN, InterSpread, CamDairy, VetPad), and is also experienced in the use and integration of a wide range of software for epidemiological uses, notably geographical information systems (GIS), expert systems, multivariate analysis and simulation modelling.
The group is active in field work with humans, production animals, companion animals and wildlife in New Zealand, and provides consultancy services and training courses in epidemiology throughout the world.
Graduates of this programme have gone onto become world leaders in veterinary epidemiology and veterinary public health.
Examples of careers that our graduates have taken up include research and development managers for pharmaceutical companies, policy advisors for government agencies and working on the ground during disease outbreaks such as Foot-and-Mouth Disease and Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza.
