About this Course


This refresher course presents learners with various scenarios depicting “real-life” problems encountered by IACUCs, and they typically present both sides of contentious issues. Learners are then asked to select actions that the IACUC or investigator could take. This approach to refresher training is intended to form an interesting re-encounter of issues for the learner. A suggested refresher course consists of three or more completed case studies. The case studies can also be used during IACUC meetings for supplemental training purposes.
