City University of Hong Kong is a dynamic, fast-growing university that is pursuing excellence in research and professional education.  As a publicly-funded institution, the University is committed to nurturing and developing students’ talents and creating applicable knowledge to support social and economic advancement.  The University has nine Colleges/Schools.  As part of its pursuit of excellence, the University aims to recruit outstanding scholars from all over the world in various disciplines, including business, creative media, data science, energy and environment, engineering, humanities and social sciences, law, science, veterinary medicine and life sciences. 

The new Jockey Club College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences at City University of Hong Kong in collaboration with Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine is assembling an outstanding group of international academics to undertake teaching and research in the Department of Infectious Diseases and Public Health.  The Department is rapidly developing as an international research-oriented centre to support veterinary training and research in Hong Kong and the region.  It is well positioned to provide a strong link between the preclinical veterinary sciences and applied (clinical) veterinary medicine.  In another dimension it focuses on One Health, an area spanning the health of animals, humans and the environment.  The Department plays a key role in teaching students for the Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine programme and the MSc in Aquatic Production and Veterinary Health, as well as in other related activities such as enabling postgraduate research opportunities.  Departmental faculty members undertake teaching, research and diagnostic service across their areas of specialty.
