The Leadership Program for Veterinary Students at Cornell University is a unique summer research experience for veterinary students who seek to broadly influence the veterinary profession through a science-based career. The program is research-oriented with a laboratory research assignment for each participant. It combines this faculty-guided research project with student-directed learning through participation in modules, workshops and group discussions. The activities encourage responsible leadership, critical thinking and the development of teamwork skills. The program also focuses on career counseling and highlights graduate training opportunities calculated to promote the professional development of program alumni as independent scientists and public health professionals.
