ICBAS - Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas Abel Salazar

One Health Master

One Health is an integrative and multidisciplinary concept that promotes the sustainable balance of human, animal, plant, and environmental health. 

It is a rapidly evolving area, much needed for preparing professionals, currently in short supply, trained to face highly complex health challenges (pandemics, food insecurity, climate change, among others).

The One Health Master course is taught jointly by ICBAS - School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, and the Faculty of Economics, both at the University of Porto. It addresses a wide range of topics under the One Health paradigm, providing also foundations on the principles of ethics and economics in different health systems.

Students will develop skills in methodology, transdisciplinary interactions, and systemic approaches, always considering the interrelationship of human, animal, plant, and environmental health.

The One Health Master will train professionals with new perspectives of action in various areas such as academia and research, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector anywhere in the world.
