GENERAL OBJECTIVES:

Through a variety of educational methods (lectures, cases studies, fi eld visits and study trips), the ENSV Veterinary Education Courses aims to:

  • Participate in veterinary institutional and technical capacities; further cooperation of partner countries to develop mutual understanding.

The challenge is to allow participants to gather and share their experience through the presentation and use of different concepts; to

Plan for capacity building activities, in terms of management, law and governance of Veterinary Services.
