EXOCLINIC – VET skills for non-conventional pets

EXOCLINIC will host a 5-day Intensive Study Program which will bring together students and professionals.

TASKS and mission of EXOCLINIC
We noticed that there is a need to develop skills for trainees and professionals that are dedicated to non-conventional pets. It is a new trend in veterinary medicine and also, we found that there is more and more a concern to consider the "one health concept": humans, animals and environment. In most intuitions non-conventional pets are not mandatory subjects for students. And professionals of this areas tend to invest in its knowledge outside campus. All the reasons above lead to join forces and develop a project called " Vet skills for non-conventional pets" that goes towards both students and tutor’s demand. Our clinical cases are complex and challenging, and we always strive to find the solutions.

GOALS of the project and the needs and target groups to be addressed.
Today the European community and our world are facing multi-dimensional career goals expertise levels and exchange of good practices. By developing the VetSkills project between institutions which allows application of adequate countermeasures and counteraction on a global level. It is necessary that professionals are properly equipped with knowledge, skills, and competences relevant to their professional context which is characterized by various challenges.
FOR Students: basic techniques for avian, reptile and exotic patients.
FOR Professionals: Advanced techniques for diagnostic, medical and surgical appointments.
