All master thesis of the Joint Programme can be found under Veterinary Public Health Centre for Asia http://vphcap.wixsite.com/vphcap/thesis
Furthermore, the VPH Centre for Asia Pacific (VPHCAP) of the Partner Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Chiang Mai University improved and updated its capacity: Salmonella serotyping for the Master Studies had been done for years by the FU VPH Panel only, now having been taken over by the VPHAPC.
