Semiannual Program Review

Audience: The program is tailored to IACUC staff, IACUC members, IOs, veterinarians, investigators, compliance personnel, animal care staff and others involved in animal programs.

Speakers: Dawn O'Connor and William Greer, University of Michigan

Topic: Is your semiannual program review effective and meaningful? Are your IACUC members engaged in the process? Does it give them a sense of how the program functions? Or are you “just checking the box” and going through the motions to satisfy the regulations? In this webinar, Dawn O’Connor and Bill Greer from the University of Michigan will share their experiences on how to perform an effective, cross-functional, and engaging program review.
