Direct observation by a UAC veterinarian may be required for individual surgeons and/or new surgical procedures to ensure surgical competency.The details of the Surgical Training Program are listed here.
The Animal Hazards Program (AHP) is federally mandated and animal researchers must participate in the program. Individuals participate in the AHP by submitting the online RAQ form. Occupational Health reveiws the RAQ and the individual or protocol contact may be emailed for additional information. Depending on the animal activities, an individual may require medical surveillance which could include a clinic visit, vaccinations or diagnostic tests.
