The following steps must be successfully completed for each person before they will be authorized to work with animals in an instructional setting at Augusta University. Direct veterinary supervision is required at all times. Trainees will not be authorized to participate in any aspect of anesthesia, monitoring, euthanasia, etc. Any access to an LAS facility will require an LAS escort.
The Principal Investigator will be notified when a request is submitted.
Once the prior step are completed and clearance is granted by Occupational Health/ Employee Health, LAS veterinary or training personnel may contact you to schedule a practical training session.
NOTE: The timing of this process is entirely dependent upon your responsiveness. Prompt responses to email from LASACCESS, IACUC, ANIMALOHP, and LASTRAINING will ensure the most expedited clearance.
