Wildlife Medicine

In response to the growing need for veterinarians trained in aspects of wildlife and its conservation, St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine offers a program leading to an MSc in wildlife conservation medicine. Aspects of conservation biology and veterinary medicine are integrated to highlight the interdependency of animal, human, and environmental health. Although the program focuses on research, the following aspects will be addressed in course work:

  • Wildlife conservation and protected area management
  • Diseases/parasites of free-ranging wildlife
  • Management of free-ranging wildlife including disease investigation, management, epidemiology and wildlife immobilization
