Wildlife Disease Training in Colleges and Universities of the World

  • M. E. Fowler


Questionnaires were sent to universities throughout the world asking for information regarding the status of wildlife disease training programs.

Data were analyzed on the basis of animal groups and by countries. Excellent training programs are available dealing with fish and laboratory animal diseases. No school has a strong program in all animal groups.

There is need for improvement and/or expansion in programs available for primates, marine mammals, and invertebrates.

Mittels Fragebogen wurden Universitaeten ueberal in der Welt um Auskunft ueber den Zustand ihrer Ausbildungsprogramme in Wildkrankheiten befragt.

Die Daten wurden nach Tiergruppen und Laendern analysiert. Fuer Krankheiten der Fische und Labortiere gibt es vortreffliche Ausbildungsprogramme. Es gibt keine Schule, die fuer alle Tiergruppen ein ausgepraegtes Programme hat.

Es besteht das Beduerfnis nach Verbesserung und/oder Ausweitung der Programme betreffs Primaten, Meeressaeugetiere und wirbelloser Tiere.
