This Layers “Specialized” course, which will take place in the Utrecht Veterinary School from September 11th to 22nd, is an overview of important infectious and non-infectious diseases at different stages of pullets and layers production. The objective of the WVEPAH education program is to offer a highly specialized training on all specific aspects of layers health; pathology, epidemiology, genetics, nutrition, immunology, management, etc., in a format usable in your daily practice. The course also lays the foundation for more in depth studies on specific subjects covered in follow up courses.
The training is done by professionals for professionals, it is a problem solving approach favoring exchanges on true clinical cases suggested by Course Masters and participants with a part of practical work (wet lab). The formal academic part of the training already known from other sources is intentionally limited but available in course notes or suggested readings.
