IDOH (Infectious Diseases and One Health) is a partnership of some of Europe's leading research-intensive universities in the field of infectious diseases and the "one health" concept. The three founding partners are Université de Tours, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and Hannover Medical School. The IDOH consortium is aiming to offer innovative master’s degree in infectious diseases emphasising the three aspects of the one health concept: humans, animals and the environment. The IDOH MSc programme involves mobility of students among the partners and associate partners. There will be a maximum of 24 students in each intake, ensuring that all students receive the highest level of teaching and interactions with staff at all three institutions.
All the courses in the IDOH programme are compulsory. A list of all the courses you will study is given below.
Infectious Diseases and One Health Internships are available at three academic partners or any of 35 associated partners (academic and industrial) located worldwide.
The IDOH programme consists of 4 semesters of 30 ECTS credits each, making 2 years and 120 ECTS credits in total. The mobility structure, with a change in location each semester, gives students a wide educational experience, being taught by experts in One Health, infectious diseases, translational medicine and immunology in three premier universities.
Semester 1 covers basic immunology and infectious diseases. Semester 2 focusses on epidemiology and risk mitigation. Semester 3 covers translational medicine and diagnostics. Semester 4 is taken up with the research project, performed as a placement in industry or an internship in any full or associate partner institute.
