Educational aims :

  1. To approach population medicine in an operational way, for application to clients.
  2. To apprehend the visit of a livestock farm in a functional and structured way (preparation, implementation, assessment and follow-up) adapted to the constraints of the field.
  3. Mobilise tools adapted to the diversity of situations, to structure and analyse data efficiently and to understand clinical situations rationally.

Educational principles :

In order to make learning easier and application in the client environment, the majority of the one-week modules are organised in the following format:

  • 1-2 days of applied theoretical training, focused on the control of health problems (diagnostic approach and behaviour) ;
  • 1-2 days of clinical training, based on real cases, in the classroom ;
  • 1-2 days of clinical training, in farms, supervised by the teaching team ;
  • 1-2 days of clinical restitution, carried out remotely by videoconference, on the case of a client.

This organisation leads to modules made up of (i) a 3 to 4-day session (a, b and c), on the ENVT site, (ii) supplemented by a delocalised part, under the direct responsibility of the learner.

How do you validate your school diploma?

In practice, you need 6 weeks of teaching.

The school diploma in cattle population medicine is based on the validation of a minimum of 65 continuing education credits (65 CFCECTS) linked to the eligible modules of the courses of this school diploma, over a maximum period of 3 years. To validate these credits, two types of modules are eligible :

  • Core curriculum modules must represent a minimum of 40 CFCECTS; each of these modules is a diploma in itself (school diploma of the module title). Each core curriculum module represents an education equivalent to approximately 1 week of training.
  • The other eligible modules are of shorter duration, delivered at the ENVT or off-site.
