Ames, IA (June 7, 2016) – The web-based course Emerging and Exotic Diseases of Animals (EEDA) will be offered July 25-September 2, 2016. This online course, currently used at all US veterinary schools, can be taken by anyone interested in high consequence animal diseases and the response to them. The course is an excellent refresher for veterinarians and veterinary technicians, animal health industry employees and government officials.

The course covers the causes and consequences of foreign animal diseases (FAD), how FAD’s are transmitted and introduced, the entities involved in a response to a FAD outbreak, what to do if a FAD is suspected, how veterinarians can be involved in a FAD response, and effective communication strategies. It consistently receives high ratings from users.

Cost to take the course is $175. Participants receive a copy of the 2016 textbook, Transboundary and Emerging Diseases of Animals, a $75 value (if outside the U.S. additional fees apply to cover shipping costs for the textbook). The course has been approved for up to 46 hours of Continuing Education (CE) through RACE (Registry of Approved Continuing Education of the American Association of Veterinary State Boards). In order to receive CE, users must pass online quizzes. Participants can interact with the instructor and other students via a message board.

 

The course is moderated by Dr. Jesse Hostetter, DVM, PhD, DACVP, Professor, College of Veterinary Medicine, Iowa State University. “Professionals who take this course will gain a better understanding of clinical presentation, diagnosis and response to significant foreign animal diseases, and the role individuals can play in response to them,” said Dr. Hostetter.
