The Exotic Tumor Database Training Course, ETD101, is designed to train participants to correctly and efficiently enter clinical cancer cases into the Exotic Tumor Database, a project of the Exotic Species Cancer Research Alliance. This course is designed primarily for those with a medical background and training in common veterinary medical terminology. Our primary audience is veterinary technicians and veterinary students who are helping exotics vets and zoo vets enter their tumor cases into the Exotic Tumor Database. Pre-vet or pre-med undergraduate students who are working with a veterinarian on entering cases may also enroll. These students may need additional guidance and mentorship from their supervising veterinarian to ensure accurate data entry and interpretation of the medical records. We expect the course to take 2-3 hours to complete.
