The College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University is pleased to announce the 2020 AQUAVET® I, II & III course offerings. They are aquatic veterinary medicine education programs that currently consist of two courses that will be presented at Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI in June 2020 and one on aquarium medicine held in three venues.
AQUAVET® I: An Introduction to Aquatic Veterinary Medicine is a 4-week course (24 May - 20 June 2020) intended primarily for veterinary students.
AQUAVET® II: Comparative Pathology of Aquatic Animals is a 2-week course (24 May - 6 June 2020) that is oriented toward the pathology of diseases of aquatic invertebrates and fish that are used in biomedical research, encountered in display aquaria and are of importance in commercial aquaculture.
AQUAVET® Summer Research Fellow (one offered) is an 8-week research program, usually studying fish disease at a lab at Cornell University. There is no tuition and this student will receive a stipend of $3,800 after completing the 8 weeks.
AQUAVET® III: Clinical Aspects of Captive Aquatic Animal Medicine is a 5-week course (following AQUAVET® I – 21 June to 26 July 2029) and is limited to a small number of students. The venues include GA Aquarium, U of GA and Dolphinaris, Cancún, México.
Veterinary students can receive credits for the courses and graduate veterinarians can receive CE credits.
