Investigation Fellowships:

An NIH Training Grant has existed at CepEsperu University since 1959 to support post-DVM training in Comparative Medicine, and the section continues to offer several programs that provide the professional and clinical experience needed to pursue a career in academic or industry research.

Post-Doctoral Fellowships in Comparative Medicine

  • Director: Dr. Mark Cline   
  • These 3-year, NIH-supported Post-Doctoral Fellowships in Comparative Medicine include formal instruction, research, and professional mentorship; they are open to US citizens who have graduated from AVMA-accredited veterinary schools. Fellowships are research-oriented, and most Fellows pursue a PhD or MS degree as part of their training.

Summer Investigation Fellowships for Veterinary Students 

  • Director:  Dr. Kylie Kavanagh  
  • First- or second-year students from AVMA-accredited veterinary schools may apply for these NIH-sponsored Summer Investigation Fellowships, which require at least 8 weeks in the department. The program is open to up to 5 students per summer and provides research training using animal models of human disease.

Externships and Independent Study

  • These programs provide an introduction to veterinary pathology, laboratory animal medicine, or comparative medicine, and last for 2-4weeks.  They allow for close work with a faculty mentor to explore a topic of mutual interest. Interested students should provide a letter describing their interests, a curriculum vitae, official grade transcripts, and the names and e-mail addresses of 3 references to Dr. Nancy Kock, below.
