Invitation to the Summer School 2019 in Vienna

We would like to invite all interested residents to the Summer School for ECAR Residents on 4 July 2019 in Vienna, Austria.

The 2019 Summer School of ECAR will be held on 4 July 2019, the day directly before the ECAR Symposium at Vetmeduni Vienna. The Summer School consists of state of the art lectures on clinically relevant or emerging topics in animal reproduction. It is thus an excellent preparation for both the general and the subfield (species-specific) part of the ECAR examination.

For your registration please send an e-mail to the local organisers ( You will then receive an invoice with instructions how to arrange payment of your fee.

The fee for the summer school is 75 € and includes lunch, refreshments during breaks and a Heurigen-style Austrian buffet in the evening.

Residents are also encouraged to attend the ECAR Symposium on 5-6 July 2019 and contribute actively to the programme. Symposium contributions can be either oral communications or posters and can focus on scientific studies or interesting case reports in animal reproduction
