Master of Preventive Veterinary Medicine
The School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California, Davis offers a professional degree, the Master of Preventive Veterinary Medicine (MPVM). Using state-of-the-art methods in epidemiology, the program prepares veterinarians to investigate and evaluate disease and production problems in animal populations and to design, evaluate and implement disease control or other veterinary services programs.
The School of Veterinary Medicine (SVM) is responsible for the overall administration of the MPVM program and for awarding of the degree but many Departments, Divisions and Schools at the university also actively contribute to the MPVM program. Faculty in the SVM and other collaborating faculty carry out research on a wide variety of animal diseases, on microbial and parasitic zoonoses, veterinary public health, food and water-borne infections in humans, wildlife diseases and wildlife management, animal health economics, animal production, biostatistics, veterinary medical data management and computer applications in veterinary medicine.
