Administration and Advising

The Veterinary Scientist Training Program is administered by the VSTP office and the VSTP Advisory Committee. Their primary missions are to select candidates for the program, insure the smooth coordination of both programs and to provide advising for students in the program.

A Coordinating Advisor is assigned to assist each student in optimizing his or her degree program and progress. The VSTP advisor is distinct from the mentor under which a VSTP student will pursue their PhD. 

Advisory Committee

The advisory committee is headed by the Director of the VSTP and consists of seven additional faculty. Current advisory committee members are:

  • Dr. Fern Tablin, VSTP Director
  • Dr. Nicole Baumgarth
  • Dr. James MacLachlan
  • Dr. Isaac Pessah
  • Dr. Helen Raybould
  • Dr. Rance LeFebvre, Ex-Officio
  • Dr. Kent Lloyd, Ex Officio
