In addition to the initial training course, the IACUC requires that each investigator offer an annual animal refresher course using the materials on dar.usc.edu on animal care and use at USC to their laboratory staff on an annual basis. A DAR veterinarian is also available, on request, to perform this training instead of the investigator. Please email a DAR veterinarian to schedule this. Note that completion of the annual refresher training is mandatory for all labs utilizing animals in research. However, do not send your checklist or personnel sign in sheet to the Department of Animal Resources. This documentation must be maintained with your laboratory records and must be available for inspection by the IACUC on request.
