Master students or short-term collaborators

In general, master students or short-term members of a research team must followed the same rules as other in-vivo experimenters: before they are allowed to work with experimental animals, they need to attend Module 1 (rodent work), Module 20 (non-rodent work) or EGA (see explanations above) irrespective of how long they have been part of the group. Exceptions from this rule can be made by the cantonal vet authorities; however, this is always a single case decision by the vet office and must be brought to their attention.

Apart from that, forward-looking scheduling and pre-registration of future team members is recommended.
