Animal keeper Clinic & Research

Since 2010, we offer apprenticeships as animal keeper for clinic and research. Our team of trainers consists of 7 members who supervise 1 to 3 trainees per year.
The training as animal keeper for clinic & research lasts 3 years and can be shortened to 2 ½ year with appropriate suitability and qualification. The vocational school is located in Düsseldorf, where block lessons take place every three weeks. The practical part of the training takes place primarily in the institute's laboratory animal husbandry (mice and fish). Our animal husbandry department has cooperation partners in Wuppertal, Essen and Cologne in order to offer additional training parts that cannot be conducted in our institute. This means that the trainee spends some time during the training in internships at other locations.
A video and information about apprenticeships within the MPG can be found here.
