Be Prepared to Respond to Emerging Diseases


It's vital for our country’s preparedness that veterinarians possess the ability to quickly recognize and respond to emerging and exotic animal diseases. Threats include zoonotic diseases, (Monkeypox, Nipah) those that affect animal agriculture (FMD), and some that do both (Rift Valley Fever). Diligent surveillance and monitoring requires prepared veterinarians who can serve on the front line of animal disease detection.

This page provides a link to the Emerging and Exotic Diseases of Animals (EEDA) and USDA Initial Accreditation Training (IAT) course for use by students in schools and colleges of veterinary medicine. The Emerging and Exotic Diseases of Animals course and accompanying textbook are being used by all U.S. veterinary colleges/schools. The course helps prepare veterinarians to recognize and respond appropriately to foreign animal diseases and also contains the required online lessons for Initial Accreditation Training. Students seeking access to their institution’s version of the EEDA/IAT course can use the link below to access their course. Specific course access instructions are provided by the instructor.

Please review the USDA site for additional information on the National Veterinary Accreditation Program.
