Veterinary Anatomic Pathology, Clinical Pathology, Microbiology, and Comparative Laboratory Animal Medicine Residency Training with Graduate Research Opportunities
The Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology, College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at Colorado State University offers post-DVM graduate training positions in contemporary comparative pathology and comparative laboratory animal medicine. The core program includes residency training in anatomic pathology, clinical pathology, microbiology, or comparative laboratory animal medicine and graduate research. The program is designed to culminate in specialty board certification and granting of MS or PhD degrees. Residency training is facilitated by a diverse faculty, 22 of whom are ACVP, ACVM or ACLAM board certified. Graduate research opportunities include, but are not limited to, the study of bacterial and viral pathogenesis/therapy, mycobacterial diseases, arthropod borne infectious disease, retrovirus pathogenesis/therapy, transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, immunoparasitology, malarial molecular biology and immunology, vector biology, ecological parasitology and cancer or radiation biology. The first three years of residency and graduate training are supported by state funded stipends. NIH sponsored training grants and successful applications for extramural funding support subsequent graduate research. Benefits include paid tuition and health insurance. Applicants must have a DVM or equivalent degree from a College of Veterinary Medicine/equivalent.
