The Department of Food Hygiene and Environmental Health provides teaching in five subjects: food hygiene, environmental hygiene, meat inspection and slaughterhouse hygiene, toxicology, and environmental health and food safety control. In addition, teaching in environmental hygiene entails studies in food and environmental virology.

The aim of the studies is to provide future veterinarians with the prerequisites to work as heads of municipal environmental health care as well as in management and expert duties in the various fields of environmental health care and the environmental industry.

Participation in courses offered by the Department requires, almost without exception, prior studies in veterinary medicine.

In addition to studies required for the Licentiate of Veterinary Medicine degree, the Department arranges optional courses annually. Optional courses can also be completed as continuing education for veterinarians. Continuing education courses are announced in Fennovet’s education calendar.
