UC Davis students in a classroom



The One Health Institute, the Wildlife Health Center and our Centers of Expertise are committed to educating world leaders in veterinary medicine. We offer and support a variety of fellowship, externship, research and residency opportunities, and our faculty serve as mentors. 

One Health Fellowship

This two-year fellowship with the One Health Institute exposes early-career health professionals to academia, collaborative research and opportunities to develop skills in health science, advocacy, policy work and leadership. The fellow supports the Institute’s executive director and serves as a liaison with stakeholders, government agencies and international animal and public health organizations. The fellow also leads one or more projects in an area of interest and plays an active role in advancing the OHI’s Centers, programs and projects.
