Essentials of IACUC Administration - Intensive Agenda

Essentials of IACUC Administration—Intensive is a full-day course that provides attendees with knowledge and tools to effectively manage an animal care and use program. After attending this course, attendees will be able to: list key components of an IACUC program; understand the primary responsibilities of IACUC administrators; discuss strategies for creating and maintaining a culture of compliance; and implement best practices to ensure that IACUC administrators and their staff provide the support necessary to develop and continually strengthen both the IACUC and the broader animal care and use program. This program is ideal for experienced IACUC administrators and support staff, as well as training and compliance personnel.

It is strongly suggested attendees attend a pre-requisite "basics" course (IACUC 101™ or IACUC 201), or be working with an IACUC for at least a year prior to taking the course.
