Already a landmark event in veterinary parasitology, our summer school is designed for undergraduate students from veterinary medicine, biology and ecology. All activities take place in the field, in one of the most pristine wild environments from Europe, the Danube Delta.


The Field Parasitology International Summer School is organized since 2011 in Danube Delta by the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Cluj-Napoca (Romania), Between 2011 and 2012, the location was in Sfântu Gheorghe, at the junction of Danube with the Black Sea. Since 2013, the event has taken place annually (usually in July) in the traditional and remote village, Chilia Veche, on the Chilia branch of Danube, at the border of Romania with Ukraine.

The main site of the summer school is on Ostrovul Tătaru, a large island separated from the main village by the Tătaru channel and reachable only by boats or by the mobile bridge, crossing the channel. The facilities consist of a field station, offering basic accommodation facilities (camping, kitchen, outdoor showers and latrines) and a lab equipped for field parasitology diagnostics. A recreational area (table tennis, pool billiard, swimming pool) together with dining place for the evening is offered by Pensiunea Vital, a locally run touristic facility.
