Description of Externship:
We receive cytology, hematology and biochemical profile submissions from within the Veterinary Teaching Hospital and from veterinary practices across the country. We have a large cytology caseload of approximately 7500 cases per year. Our group consists of 7 board certified clinical pathologists and 3 clinical pathology residents. Informal activities would involve shadowing the clinical pathologists and residents during daily interpretation of cases. We also have a number of self-guided cytology/hematology teaching sets.
Scheduled activities would include:
- Weekly histology and clinical pathology slide seminar
- Weekly "topics" in clinical pathology, journal club discussion
- Weekly surgical biopsy class directed at residents throughout the hospital
- Weekly clinical pathology rounds
- Weekly necropsy rounds
Veterinary students interested in a combined residency/PhD program are welcome to apply.
