The Division of Comparative Medicine (DCM) — formerly the Division of Laboratory Animal Medicine (DLAM) — is responsible for the care of all vertebrate animals on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) campus. DCM is committed to programs of excellence in veterinary care and laboratory animal management practices for all species used in UNC-CH research endeavors.
A staff of more than 170 professional, technical and administrative personnel provides quality animal care to a daily population of over 200,000 animals located in 26 animal facilities on and off the UNC campus. Federal funding and foundations sponsor over $900 million in research on the UNC campus conducted by the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Public Health, Pharmacy, as well as the Departments of Biology, Chemistry and Psychology.
A major responsibility of the Division’s veterinarians, veterinary technicians and laboratory technicians is the health care and humane use of all animals. The Division’s program is reviewed semi-annually by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, and has been accredited by the Association for the Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALAC) since 1973. DCM and the University also meet U. S. Department of Agriculture and Public Health Service standards and regulations. As laboratory animal specialists they provide a comprehensive program of veterinary care, offer technical advice and assistance, and provide needed laboratory and research core services for teaching and research purposes.
|Equal Opportunity Employer||
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, race, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or status as a protected veteran.
The Training & Care Assurance Manager is responsible for providing and coordinating training for animal care and research staff in order to fulfill the requirements mandated by the Animal Welfare Act (AWA).
The Animal Welfare Act (AWA), which is law, states “it shall be the responsibility of the research facility to ensure that all scientists, research technicians, animal technicians, and other personnel involved in animal care, treatment, and use are qualified to perform their duties. This responsibility shall be fulfilled in part through the provision of training and instruction to those personnel.” The AWA further mandates that institutions make training and instruction available to personnel and requires that institutions review the qualifications of personnel with sufficient frequency in order to fulfill the research facility’s responsibilities.
The impact of this position affects Division of Comparative Medicine – DCM’s compliance with the AWA, Public Health Service (PHS) Policy, and AAALAC accreditation by providing crucial training to ensure all personnel involved in animal care are qualified as required by the various regulating and accrediting organizations. Without USDA compliance and maintaining the critical AAALAC accreditation, the University’s animal research program and its ability to obtain an estimated $300 million in animal-based research grants could be at risk. In addition, this position coordinates with the University’s Department of Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) to maintain proper safety requirements and training for personnel involved in animal care. This task impacts the safety and compliance of DCM’s staff and is a factor in maintaining OSHA compliance and limiting job-related injuries and absences.
