Previous Iterations

The foundation of all ProgRESSVet training is a technical curriculum designed and delivered by faculty and researchers at the University of Minnesota and in CAHFS’ global network. A key element of this training is the development of an individual or small group project to apply the technical knowledge and skills that participants gain in their coursework.

Through interactions with their peers and project mentors, participants build their professional networks and gain a clearer understanding of their potential to impact planning to support the broader animal health system.
