State Veterinary Public Health Program

The Veterinary Public Health program ("Physikat") is a comprehensive postgraduate course designed to prepare veterinarians for the state veterinary public health exam, a mandatory step toward becoming an official state veterinarian in Austria.

The program has a twofold objective: firstly, to offer forward-looking training that equips veterinarians with the necessary skills for roles within public veterinary health administration. Secondly, it aims to empower participants to operate at an progressive professional level by incorporating the latest advancements in animal welfare, infectious (zoonotic) diseases, food safety, and veterinary medicinal products, on the basis of national and international legislation.

Collaborating closely with the Federal Ministry of Social Affairs, Health, Long-Term Care, and Consumer Protection, this program ensures comprehensive support on economic, organizational, and content-related fronts, enhancing its effectiveness and relevance in addressing contemporary veterinary public health challenges.
