One Health Core Competencies

We are happy to introduce our new Online Module “One Health Core Competencies".

The pilot versions in English and Spanish will start on 8 November 2021 with the plan to offer the course on a regular basis beginning in the upcoming summer-semester. Welcome are participants from many different disciplines – human and veterinary medicine, environmental and social studies – to train interdisciplinary teamwork and address One Health challenges.

The course consists of a blended learning system, including synchronous and asynchronous units.

In the asynchronous sessions, the participants will be led through the theoretical foundations of interdisciplinary teamwork, systems thinking and the One Health approach through self-study with interactive elements on the Moodle-platform. Participants will also see illustrative examples of current One Health scientific cases. During the synchronous sessions, participants will meet online via ‘Zoom’ and work together as multi- and interdisciplinary teams. They will reflect and discuss on the One Health approach and solve a real-world One Health problem using an interactive problem-based learning method. The learned content will be reviewed in interactive tasks on Moodle. As a final assignment, participants will develop a written report – the “Mission Plan” for solving the One Health problem.

Learning objectives:

At the end of the module, the participants will be able to:

  • identify the One Health approach, its definitions, history, and current discourses
  • recognize current global health challenges, identify underlying problems and define their dimensions and impact on human, animal and environmental health systems
  • manage multi- and interdisciplinary teams, understand roles and responsibilities, familiarize with concepts and vocabulary of other disciplines
  • develop solutions for One Health problems and plan their implementation
  • be aware of the big picture and interdependencies of stakeholders in global health challenges

Target group:

Students and docents of Bachelor/ Master/PhD in human medicine, veterinary medicine, environmental and social studies.
