An online educational programme for the competent designated veterinarian in laboratory animal facilities. 

”Our goal is to offer a programme at a high level, high quality and easy access for Designated Veterinarians all over the world”
Programme director professor Axel Kornerup

The Labvet Europe programme aims at qualifying designated laboratory animal veterinarians to the level demanded by the 2010 EU directive on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes and the subsequent guidance paper. It is to be seen as continuation of the competencies gained from following the previous FELASA category D programmes, but it is solely dedicated to those thousands of vets who work world-wide as designated laboratory animal veterinarians.

The programme is 100 % online, except for the final exams which takes place in Copenhagen, and it is accredited by the Federation of European Laboratory Animal Science Associations (FELASA). It is structured to offer you knowledge and skills you can use in your daily work as a designated veterinarian. You can see the specfic knowledge and skills you acquire on the programme learning outcomes.
