Chicken I, Tunis / Tunisia, 11 - 22 April 2016, French
Course Masters Team: Prof. Jean-Pierre Vaillancourt (CA) , Prof. Moncef Bouzouaïa (TN), Dr. Robert Gauthier (CA), Prof. Abdelkader Amara (TN), Prof. Gharbi (TN), Dr. Stéphane Lemière (FR) , Dr. Daniel Venne (CA), Dr. Rachid Bouguedour, OIE (DZ), Dr. André Vallières (CA), Mr. Samuel Roulleau (FR)


OVERVIEW

Following the first two modules in Dakar and the first module in Berlin, and also from the comments made by the students, we wanted to review the structure of the course to harmonize the broiler, layer and turkey courses.
It seems logical that a general course covering all the general aspects and applicable to all species would give the students a more homogeneous preparation.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Following this two weeks general course (module I), the students will be able to choose the second module (1 or 2 weeks as required by each program) that will specifically cover the broiler chickens, the layers or the turkeys.


STRUCTURE OF THE COURSE

During the morning session, topics are presented in interactive lectures supported by case presentations. The afternoons are reserved for wet labs and problem solving in small groups.
