Advanced Techniques Module

This module has two components comprising the theory and practice of working with mouse or rat models requiring advanced biomethodology. The theoretical component is on-line and may be taken at your convenience by logging on to Quercus with your UTORid once you are registered.  Once you have passed the theoretical component, you will be registered for the practical, hands-on session. This includes competency assessments in specific areas. Note that training in any procedures not covered in the advanced techniques module may be arranged as a one-on-one session with senior DCM trainers.
