This highly specialised course is aimed at all persons who carry out procedures on animals, care for animals or euthanase animals, for the purpose of conducting research, testing or teaching at UCT and in Africa. The course is also broadly attended by veterinary and para-veterinary professionals and animal ethics committee (AEC) members.
Our main objective is to present the basic principles and facts that underlie the responsible and ethical care and use of non-human animals for scientific purposes.
The majority of lectures and principles included in the course are applicable across animal species. The practical sessions and some of the clinical lectures focus on mice and rats.
