Lunches will also be provided on select days during the program, with beverages (water, soda, coffee, and tea) provided daily. Please note that in-person attendees are responsible for their own travel to Gainesville, Florida, as well as lodging and transportation to UF CVM throughout the course.

Virtual Registration Fee

Provides virtual access to the educational materials including all lectures, PDF lecture notes as made available by lecturers, in real time, virtual facility tours, and the welfare panel. Please note that we are negotiating the two Wednesday field trips to  offer a partial virtual component. Although the sea turtle necropsy lab will not offer a real-time virtual component, a pre-recorded sea turtle necropsy video will be available for viewing.

Class Assignment: There will be a required small group project which will mix virtual and in person participants in its design so computers will be needed for those periods.
