Residency Program in Zoo Pathology

 

Cornell University, located in Ithaca, New York, is an inclusive, dynamic, and innovative Ivy League university and New York’s land-grant institution. The Wildlife Conservation Society, based in the Bronx, NY, is a world-renowned conservation organization whose aims are to save wild animals and wild lands. Staff and faculty at both institutions impart an uncommon sense of larger purpose and contribute creative ideas and best practices to further their goals of teaching, conservation, research, outreach and capacity building.

The Department of Biomedical Sciences, Section of Anatomic Pathology at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and the Wildlife Health Program at the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) in New York City seek applications for a resident position in Zoo and Wildlife Pathology approximately every three years. This three year residency program is designed to prepare candidates for a career in veterinary pathology and certification by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists. The program involves two years of general anatomic pathology training at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, and a third year of training at the WCS in the Bronx, NY. With high caseloads generated through the necropsy and surgical pathology services at both institutions, the trainee will have access to extensive case materials and training resources across a wide variety of species. Case based learning is supplemented by resident and faculty organized seminars, lectures and weekly surgical and gross pathology rounds. Opportunities exist to pursue post-residency graduate research training in a variety of laboratories affiliated either with Cornell or WCS.

The annual salary for a first year resident is $35,700. Additional information is available here or by contacting Dr. Teresa Southard or Dr. Andrew Miller at raemail@cornell.edu.
