  • analyse and interpret data from epidemiological studies
  • undertake risk analysis and apply this to animal health economics
  • apply epidemiological principles to disease control within animal and human populations
  • give pragmatic advice on animal health linked to welfare, production and public health
  • communicate effectively on the health of animal and human populations to a range of audiences, including the general public, farmers, researchers, politicians and other key policy makers
