Residency Programs

Biomedical Sciences Residency Program - Veterinary Pathology

The Department of Biomedical Sciences currently supports three-year residency programs in both anatomic and clinical pathology. These training programs are designed to prepare trainees to become board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Pathology. Residents are trained in all aspects of diagnostic investigation including cytology, hematology, clinical chemistry and urinalysis for clinical pathology trainees and surgical biopsy and necropsy for anatomic pathology trainees. Residents participate in weekly journal club and attend rounds for histopathology, gross pathology and cytology. They work closely with students, house officers and clinicians in the teaching hospital as well as referring veterinarians. Residents are also encouraged to pursue research projects of interest and educational benefit. The goal of the program is to provide residents with a learning environment conducive to becoming highly competent veterinary pathologists with skills in diagnostics, teaching and research.
