MARVET California 2008 (Sausalito, California)
MARVET offers graduate veterinarians an intense lecture and hands-on workshop, directed toward critical veterinary care and rehabilitation of stranded pinnipeds - primarily California sea lions, harbor seals and elephant seals.
Students will have the opportunity to perform traditional diagnostic workups and develop therapies for actual cases at the Center, and perform necropsies with a Board-Certified pathologist.
The contribution that rehabilitation facilities make to species conservation and ecosystem health will be examined.
The Marine Mammal Center www.tmmc.org is a state-of-the-art veterinary treatment and holding facility, reflecting emerging societal concerns for environmental responsibility through energy efficient architectural design and new construction for the Center and its veterinary hospital is currently in progress with completion planned in late 2007.
Tuition includes lodging and all course activities.
