|Description:||The programme covers all areas of Laboratory animal science to the level of specialization. The program is recognised by FELASA as for Specialist. The course comprises 6 modules, a practical placement and a project. It is designed to be completed in three years and to be fully compatible with a full-time job. The modules are intensive and two are run each year lasting between 1-2 weeks. In this way the course can accommodate students who live outside Barcelona. The programme consists of 6 independent modular courses. The syllabus covers all core modules and task-specific modules plus the following modules: 20 (Anesthesia for minor procedures), 21 (Advanced anaesthesia for surgical or prolonged procedures) 22 (principles of Surgery), 23 (Advanced animal husbandry, care and enrichment practices), 24 (Designated Veterinarian), 25 (Project Evaluator). Registration to single course modules is available. Students are individually evaluated for each module. The program aims to provide expertise and professional excellence in all areas of laboratory animal science relevant to animal experimentation. Specifically, the program is designed for veterinarians and other specialist personnel designated with responsibility for the welfare and care of laboratory animals. Each module can be completed independently with some modules leading to accreditation for some of the functions described in EU Directive EU63/2010 and RD 53/2013 such as performing procedures, project design and project evaluation. See individual modules for details. Accredited by FELASA since 2003 (Specialist) The programme consists of 6 independent modular courses.
