The Autonomous University of Barcelona organizes from June/21 to July/9 an international summer school course, dedicated to Diseases of Marine Mammals. Participants (with a limit of 30 students) will learn on the main diseases and threats that affect wild cetaceans and pinnipeds (bacterial, viral, and parasitic infections, as well as anthropogenic influences and other non-infectious problems). The course will also pay attention to the methodologies of disease detection and investigation. As part of the practical training, a full necropsy of a dolphin (frozen and thawed for the course) will be performed in groups of 15 students at the necropsy room of the Veterinary Faculty. Information on diseases will be also complemented with a practical session of 3 hr. at the microscope, visualizing slides of specific diseases at the microscopy laboratory.

The course will be presential, from Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and students are expected to spend between two and three hours per day on self-guided learning. A total of 6 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) will be certified once the course has been satisfactorily completed.
The course is directed to veterinary medicine and marine biology graduate students in the last years of training, and to master students willing to get a comprehensive view of marine mammal diseases.
Registration for external (non UAB students) is open and still there are sites available (before 16 of May there is a discount of 20% of the fee).
