The new Jockey Club College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences at City University of Hong Kong in collaboration with Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine is assembling an outstanding group of international academics to undertake teaching and research in the Department of Infectious Diseases and Public Health. The Department is rapidly developing as an international research-oriented centre to support veterinary training and research in Hong Kong and the region. It is well positioned to provide a strong link between the preclinical veterinary sciences and applied (clinical) veterinary medicine. In another dimension it focuses on One Health, an area spanning the health of animals, humans and the environment. The Department plays a key role in teaching students for the Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine programme and the MSc in Aquatic Production and Veterinary Health, as well as in other related activities such as enabling postgraduate research opportunities. Departmental faculty members undertake teaching, research and diagnostic service across their areas of specialty.
The innovative Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine curriculum includes a number of courses on Food Safety/Veterinary Public Health, one of the four pillars of strategic missions and major research strength. The appointee is expected to contribute to the further development and implementation of the professional veterinary curriculum in the area of Food Safety/Veterinary Public Health; foster excellence in veterinary education and research; teach and manage undergraduate and postgraduate courses; develop new research directions and maintain robust research programmes; and carry out administrative work and other duties to facilitate the development of the Department and the College as a whole.
