MCM graduates are a well-trained cohort of transdisciplinary, passionate individuals committed to working together to identify, improve and solve issues negatively impacting today's complex world.
The MS in Conservation Medicine (MCM) uses a One Health approach to address urgent issues facing our planet, including emerging and resurging diseases, habitat use conflicts, environmental contamination, ecosystem and climate change, biodiversity loss, and ecosystem function degradation.
MCM students are passionate problems solvers, by nature. They are action-oriented individuals trained to investigate problems beyond STEM disciplines integrating political, social, cultural, economic and other factors to help solve global health issues.
Students enter the MCM program with unique experiences, passions, and perspectives. They network amongst each other, faculty and guest lecturers to motivate each other, learn from one another other, share thoughts and viewpoints, and tackle problems.
Through small group learning, individual mentoring, capstone project work and hands-on externship experiences, MCM students gain practical knowledge to address complex issues affecting our world today.
