Zoobiquity Conference: A Species-Spanning Approach to Medicine
Date: September 29, 2012
Location: Tamkin Auditorium, Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles, California
Comparative medicine once occupied a primary position in medical thought and education. Today, although the spectrum of clinical illness in animals and humans overlaps tremendously, veterinary and human clinical medicine operate in largely separate professional silos. Our fields come together episodically around concerns such as food safety, emerging infections and zoonoses. But the connections between human and veterinary health and clinical practice extend far beyond these issues - a reality well known to veterinarians but less recognized by human physicians. One step to facilitate understanding of the global and species-spanning nature of illness and health is to literally facilitate introductions between clinicians on both sides of this "species-divide."
