|Zoological Pathology Program, University of Illinois|
The Zoological Pathology Program (ZPP) is a full-service diagnostic, teaching, and research pathology program, specializing in exotic and wildlife diseases. Based in Chicago, ZPP is a unique collaboration between the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, Chicago Zoological Society’s Brookfield Zoo, Lincoln Park Zoological Gardens, John G. Shedd Aquarium, and local wildlife agencies.
Whenever possible, participation in gross necropsies will be a priority. Teaching sets of classic non-domestic animal gross and histological lesions are available for study as are copies of important published papers and literature. The ZPP has a full library of textbooks and archives of case material that is also available for individual study if interest and time permit.
Interested applicants should submit a CV, brief statement of goals and provide names of two references. Electronic applications are welcome. Send materials at least 6 months (preferably 1 year) in advance of the desired start date. Open slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Externships are offered between February and October.
Several low cost housing options close to convenient public transportation are available (approximately $250-300 per week). Free housing is not available.
