The author gives an overview on the education of exotic animal health management in the veterinary training and summarizes the elective subjects in chronological order in undergraduate studies. The author also reviews the courses listed in the "Exotic animal medicine postgraduate training" for veterinarians and in the new course with ongoing accreditation about "Exotic animal keeping and breeding".
