GD has launched its GD Academy to provide state of the art farm animal health teaching. Nationwide disease control programmes, up-to-date diagnostic services, epidemiology and applied animal research are the core activities of GD, which provide a unique environment for GD Academy.

GD Academy provides national and international courses related to animal diseases for farm staff and their veterinarians, the veterinary pharmaceutical  industry, the animal feed industry and the government. As GD operates one of the largest veterinary laboratories in the world, this enables its Academy to offer theoretical and practical courses on the implementation of veterinary diagnostic lab-test methods as well. 

During the year, GD Academy offers four open trainings. Courses also can be fully custom-made in order to meet our client’s needs. They may be given at GD, at another location in the Netherlands or abroad.

Sjaak de Wit, DVM, PhD, dipl. ECPSV, Senior Scientist R&D and GD Academy teacher:
“Involving both our own experts and external speakers, we can cover multiple disciplines on a high level. The available knowledge is extensive and we like to share this with our participants, in order to contribute to healthy and sustainable farming worldwide.”
