Poultry Health Science: Avian Mycoplasmosis
Are you a veterinarian or a postgraduate in Life Sciences and working in poultry in a scientific or leading position, now or in the near future? Continuing Education Veterinary Medicine of Utrecht University together with Royal GD developed a postgraduate course Poultry Health Science with the aim to train academic professionals to become experts in poultry health care.
Poultry production is a global, fast-growing industry that is the biggest supplier of animal protein and eggs worldwide. Further growth is expected due to the growing demands. Production is no longer just about the lowest costs and highest efficiency; other aspects such as human health and environment are increasingly important. Therefore, thorough and continuous education is needed on poultry health, clinical reasoning, evidence-based medicine, disease management, animal welfare and related matters. This course offers in-depth knowledge on these topics.
Module 2. Avian Mycoplasmosis
September 13th module 2 of the Poultry Health Science course will start. Mycoplasma spp. are of clinical and economic importance for the global poultry industry. This module provides an extensive overview of the knowledge regarding both pathogens and the factors that influence the clinical expression of the disease.
