In addition to research and services, education is an important focus of our clinic. We offer students the opportunity to acquire important knowledge in handling birds and reptiles and to deepen their knowledge of diagnostics and therapy of relevant diseases.
It is now possible to complete a student internship (2 to 8 weeks) in our clinic. For details see below.
The training objective is for you to learn the proper handling of birds and reptiles and to be able to safely collect specimen material for further examination as well as to apply medication.
From the 6th to the 8th semester, clinical hours take place at our facility every three weeks. Here you will sharpen your diagnostic skills and apply and deepen what you have learned in theory.
Currently, the clinical hours take place in seminar room 3 of the HGH.
Protective clothing (gown) is required.
Teaching on the subject of stock management takes place in the seventh and eighth semesters (FS). There are lectures as well as an optional field trip in the 8th semester, if possible.
Three days before you enter the flock with us, you should have no contact with other poultry; we assure this with our entry in the flock book.
Protective clothing will be provided by us.
You will be excused for clinical hours that day.
Student internships can be completed at the clinic both as part of TAppV training and on a voluntary basis.
We offer internship periods from 14 days to 8 weeks, in principle as full-day internships.
The internships offer the opportunity for intensive familiarization and in-depth training in both avian and reptile medicine. Please contact us if you are interested in an internship at our clinic.
