Description of Externship:

The core program is necropsy examination of domestic with review of the histopathology of cases and biopsy samples with the pathologist(s) on duty. The student can observe testing in bacteriology, virology, and toxicology as well, and assist with clinical pathology samples (cytology). Self-study glass slides are available. Occasional field trips to premises where there are active disease outbreaks can be arranged. Students are responsible for their expenses. Housing can be difficult to locate in Laramie during academic sessions (late Jan – early May; late August – late December). Faculty members can sometimes assist students secure university accommodation either through the university’s student housing unit (Residence Life and Dining Services – http://uwadmnweb.uwyo.edu/reslife-dining/) or through other entities on campus that have housing for visiting scholars. The latter is most likely to be secured if we are contacted well in advance of a proposed start date. We have a separate externship for students who come here specifically to work on wildlife diseases. There is financial support for students coming here on the wildlife externship. The experience will be meaningful to any veterinary student, but those who have completed their school's pathology training benefit most.
