Welcome to THOHUN-TELI

The following modules were designed to prepare learners’ for activities during the field practicum, so try your best in learn all the modules and accomplish all tasks.


In Year 2015, a teaching platform was developed to integrate One Health into field- and community-based learning. The faculties of Veterinary Science, Tropical Medicine, and Environment and Resource Studies in Mahidol University piloted the International Short Course on Ecosystem Health (or THOHUN-TELI). Since 2019, the course has integrated the community-based learning project of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Khon Kaen University.

This year, THOHUN continues to deliver TELI as a high-impact platform to train multidisciplinary students and professionals to prepare them to identify and respond to existing and current infectious threats and public health issues.


THOHUN-TELI will build on the knowledge and experiences of students or the future Thai One Health workforce together with health workers/professionals and enhance vital skills through hands-on and applied learning opportunities.
