I believe it should include a field of study for veterinary technicians, due to the range of need and the ability of veterinary technicians to fulfill the requirements other than the practice of veterinary medicine. We can definately participate in biodefense and emergency preparedness; emerging and reemerging infection diseases; environmental health; ecosystem health pre- and post-harvest food protection; regulatory medicine; diagnostic laboratory medicine; veterinary pathology; biomedical research. Veterinary technicians have the ability to cover these areas, if only there was a specific field of study for a specialty in Public health for veterinary technicians. I have a personal interest in the field but want to remain a licensed veterinary technician rather than a veterinarian.
