Residency Program in Anatomic Pathology

 

Cornell University, located in Ithaca, New York, is an inclusive, dynamic, and innovative Ivy League university and New York’s land-grant institution. Its staff, faculty, and students impart an uncommon sense of larger purpose and contribute creative ideas and best practices to further the university’s mission of teaching, research, and outreach.

The Section of Anatomic Pathology in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University invites applicants for anatomic pathology residency positions which begin on July 1 of each year. These are three year training positions designed to prepare candidates for careers in veterinary pathology and certification by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists.

The Section of Anatomic Pathology at Cornell provides diagnostic pathology support for the New York State Animal Health Diagnostic Center. The training is case-based, using submissions received by the Diagnostic Center for necropsy and surgical pathology services. The residents receive wide exposure to companion, agricultural, laboratory, and wildlife animal pathology. Resident learning is supplemented by resident and faculty organized slide seminars, lectures, and rotations through specialty laboratories. Opportunities exist for post-residency graduate research training in a variety of laboratories at Cornell. A DVM degree or equivalent and an outstanding academic record, as well as excellent interpersonal skills and a strong interest in veterinary pathology, are required.

The annual salary for a first year resident is $35,200. Additional information about our Residency Program can be found here or by contacting our Residency Training Director::
