Learning Objectives

The LTK Module 8 aims at building up surgical skills with a focus on state of the art rodent procedures. This course is organised to improve the skills of scientists in this domain. Beginners with previous knowledge can complete this course under supervision of our team and external specialists.


During this two day course, beginners with no or little previous knowledge will get instructed first in basic surgical skills (eg. knots and sutures). On the second day, participants will already be taught basic procedures and will be able to perform a soft tissue surgery on real tissue by themselves.

Criteria for the Participation

This course is organized for persons who completed the basic education in laboratory animal science and aimed at scientists involved in surgery in their animal experimentation.

Accreditation and Recognition

This course is recognized as two days continuing education in Switzerland by the Federation of Swiss Cantonal Veterinary Officers (VSKT).

Course Fees

Universities in Switzerland: CHF: 500.-

Please note that we will charge you the full fees in case of a late cancellation of the course (within 3 weeks before start of the course) or in case of absence. It is the responsibility of the participant to inform the organizer of the course about the cancellation before the deadline of 3 weeks before the course to avoid the billing of the course. To charge for cancellations is common practice by other providers, too. The new proceedings for education courses became necessary due to an increasing extent of short term cancellations in training modules.


Insurance is responsibility of each participant.
