Laboratory Animal Residency

The residency in laboratory animal medicine is a three-year program designed to prepare the incumbent for a productive career in laboratory animal medicine, to partially fulfill the requirements for board eligibility of the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM), and to fulfill the requirements for a MS degree. 

He/she will participate in the clinical practice of laboratory animal medicine and in the instructional program on a full-time basis.  Residents rotate through the Veterinary School and University vivaria along with at least one of two local primate centers. Time will be scheduled for didactic instruction, rounds, seminars, guided self-study, and participation in biomedical research. Residents are considered employees and have access to the university health plans and retirement.

Each year the appointment will be reviewed, with reappointment contingent upon satisfactory completion of the previous year's program.
