Rodent Surgery Training Classes

The next Rodent Surgery Classes will be held during the spring 2018 semester (date and time TBD). Please contact the ARP if you would like to attend. Class size is limited.

ARP offers rodent surgery training classes to PSU personnel and students on a regular basis. The class emphasizes the appropriate and humane use of animals in research and consists of two, 3-hour sessions that meet approximately one week apart.  Participants are required to be listed on a PSU IACUC-approved protocol, have completed all required online IACUC training and attend both class sessions. Topics covered include aseptic technique, preparation and planning for surgery, suturing, anesthesia and analgesia. Prior experience in surgery is not expected and both class sessions include lecture and laboratory exercises.
