One Health, One Medicine
I'm really passionate about the One Health, One Medicine aspect of my course, I think One Health is such an important part of both animal and human health and welfare. It's important to work with other health professionals to deal with issues in One Health to make sure all the cogs are in place so we can tackle emerging diseases or other global issues such as antimicrobial resistance. This collaborative approach to disease control is what draws me to the discipline.
I decided to study abroad because I wanted to gain insight into another country’s One Health systems and experience something new!
I have so many amazing memories from my time in Uganda, but one of my favourite moments was going to the karaoke bar with friends from Makerere University and exchange students from Cornell University! The song Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars will always remind me of that night.
I've loved every second of my time at Surrey and how best to top it off with an amazing trip to Uganda, where I learned so much more about my interests whilst also making new friends!
My time studying in Uganda has made me even more motivated to continue my career path toward One Health - I loved seeing its applications and importance in another country! I'm now currently on an internship with the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE).
For anyone considering studying abroad, I'd say 'GO FOR IT!' It's a wonderful experience to see more of the world and discover different things.
