On-line courses in the field of Economics of Animal Health

Dear partners,

Last year we developed and provided two on-line courses in the field of Economics of Animal Health. These were successfully given and will be provided this year again.

The first course starting on March 31 2014, “Economic principles and concepts for the veterinary sciences”, is an introductory course and aims at providing beginning students in the field of animal health economics with the basic concepts and issues in economics as they underlie decision making around animal health problems.

Animal Health and Welfare Economics LinkedIn Group

Dear Colleagues

I started the Animal Health and Welfare Economics LinkedIn Group back in 2011 to create a specialised platform about Animal Health and Welfare Economics. The objective was to provide an interactive platform to discuss issues related to animal health and welfare economics and to share experiences, publications, and opinions among the group members. Currently the group has 52 members from around the globe and this number is increasing.

Veterinary Business and Enterprise: Theoretical Foundations and Practical Cases

This book written by Colette Henry presents readers with a unique collection of theory-based chapters and case studies that together provide a clear and practical illustration of key contemporary challenges in veterinary business management. The cases are based on real businesses within the broader veterinary sector both nationally and internationally. Each case sets a particular theme relevant to the effective and practical management of a veterinary or veterinary-related business, and presents a particular business challenge for students to solve.
