Foster excellence in clinical teaching
The advanced specialty training program for residents is one of the largest in the country, dedicated to nurturing veterinarians with career interests in clinical specialty practice or academia. The faculty embraces the need for advanced training with protected time and opportunities to gain clinical research experience. Faculty mentors will foster closer interactions between basic science faculty, graduate academic students and residents to promote an integrated culture of discovery and learning for best investigative practices.
