Conservation medicine is a multidisciplinary emerging field that is concerned with the interface between human health, animal health (both wild and domestic) and ecosystem health. This provides students from various backgrounds with the opportunity to learn/practice the principles of conservation biology/medicine using the ecology and fauna of Costa Rica.

This is designed as a non-traditional, study abroad course, and thus the majority of course work will take place in Costa Rica. Aside from three, 1.5 hour pre-travel meetings, the entire 31- day course will be in the country of Costa Rica during the summer semester, but not including the entire semester.
