Public Health

The Australian Veterinarians in Public Health Group caters for veterinarians with an interest in classical animal diseases which can be transferred to humans (zoonoses), as well as more general areas of food safety and animal disease epidemics which may cross infect humans.

Public health veterinarians work in many fields including:

  • meat inspection and issues relating to meat and food contamination
  • microbiology, virology and cellular and molecular biology particularly in relation to animal/human pathogens
  • species specialities particularly poultry and pigs
  • government work in endemic animal disease control, exotic disease control, epidemiology, regulation and aspects of drug use and residues.
