Master program “One Health” was developed within the EU funded TEMPUS project “1HEALTH” through evaluation of international trends/standards and surveyed needs of all stakeholders. The project consortium that had developed curriculum, alongside capacity building and improvement of teacher’s competencies at involved Western Balkan Faculties, included Universities from Milan, Barcelona, Porto and Ljubljana as the EU partners, Universities from Sarajevo, East Sarajevo, and Pristina as beneficiary partners, together with NGO and government agencies dealing with quality control and evaluation of the project and academic study programs.
Resulting curriculum received high remarks both through the internal evaluation and review of external international experts. After administrative procedure of approval and accreditation by national competent authorities in BiH, student enrolment procedure has been initiated in October, 2016. Even though the project itself envisaged 10 candidates, due to high interest, the number of candidate has been doubled; however the number of received application from all very eligible candidates was three times as higher.
Study program of “One Health” master includes 8 courses:
Each of the courses was conceptualized by international and multidisciplinary teams, correspondingly guided by teachers from Veterinary and Medical Faculties of BiH Universities. Recognition of this effort towards true multidisiciplinarity was mirrored in various professional backgrounds of applicants of which several were even other than biomedical professions. Teaching methodology for the courses also is significantly improved compared to existing standards in higher education in BiH, and includes principles of adult learning, problem based learning, interactive teaching and long-distance learning (on line course contents). Accepted candidates were officially welcomed by UNSA Rector, deans/vice-deans of participating Faculties and had their first lecture on 14.11.2016. This ceremony attended also by relevant government representatives and national media and results and achievements of Project 1HEALTH have been presented.
