The undergraduate teaching of veterinary public health & epidemiology was part of veterinary and animal science curriculum since the establishment of College of Veterinary and Animal Sciences in July, 1986. This was the component of the then combined department of Microbiology, Pathology and Parasitology. The department of Veterinary Public Health & Epidemiology, as an independent department, came into existence in 1991. Consequent upon the implementation of Veterinary Council of India (VCI) Regulation, 1993 (minimum standards of veterinary education curriculum) the department was renamed as the Department of Veterinary Public Health in 1996. Following the implementation of revised (VCI) regulation 2008, Veterinary Epidemiology was merged with the department and the discipline has been renamed as Veterinary Public Health and Epidemiology. The department attained the status of post graduate department in 2007 with the start of M.V.Sc. programme.
