Online emerging, exotic disease course offered

Iowa State University announced that it will offer the web-based course "Emerging & Exotic Diseases of Animals" (EEDA) from July 25 to Sept. 2.

This online course, currently used at all U.S. veterinary schools, can be taken by anyone interested in high-consequence animal diseases and the response to them. The course serves as a refresher for veterinarians and veterinary technicians, animal health industry employees and government officials.

The course covers the causes and consequences of foreign animal diseases (FAD), how FADs are transmitted and introduced, the entities involved in a response to the FAD outbreak, what to do if FAD is suspected, how veterinarians can be involved in the FAD response and effective communication strategies. It consistently receives high ratings from participants.

The cost to take the course is $175. Participants receive a copy of the 2016 textbook Transboundary & Emerging Diseases of Animals, a $75 value (if outside the U.S., additional fees apply to cover shipping costs for the textbook). The course has been approved for up to 46 hours of continuing education through the Registry of Approved Continuing Education of the American Association of Veterinary State Boards.

The course is moderated by Dr. Jesse Hostetter, a professor in the Iowa State College of Veterinary Medicine.

“Professionals who take this course will gain a better understanding of clinical presentation, diagnosis and response to significant foreign animal diseases and the role individuals can play in response to them,” Hostetter said.
