The Poultry Health course covers the nature, diagnosis and control of infectious diseases of poultry. It is designed for veterinary surgeons, technical staff and managers from the poultry industry. The course is also suitable for non-specialist graduates who wish to gain a thorough knowledge of the poultry sector while working towards the postgraduate awards in Agrifood. The course will reflect developments in poultry health and the changing areas of veterinary and technical expertise within it.
