Last call to register for IACUC 101/201 Plus! These workshops run for 2 full days and explore IACUC fundamentals appropriate for new and seasoned IACUC members, IACUC affiliates, and individuals responsible for their institution's animal care program. Didactic sessions address institutional responsibilities, IACUC charges, relevant informational resources, animal welfare laws, regulations and policies, and best practices. The USDA and OLAW will have representatives present to provide guidance on compliance issues and to provide agency updates. The "Plus" portion of the program includes additional Occupational Health and Safety, Wildlife, and Post Approval Monitoring modules, as well as a highly interactive faculty skit that will surely get the conversations flowing!
This highly interactive program provides multiple opportunities to engage in real-life applications of the basic concepts with the goals of learning new approaches and gaining new perspectives for managing issues that many animal care and use programs face. Students also are challenged to consider, deliberate, and develop action plans for a variety of potential IACUC scenarios.
