Design curriculum and training programs to meet current and future societal needs
Identifying the needs and interests of our students and of the society we serve is critical to the development and ever-refinement of the professional DVM curriculum. Our veterinary graduates and veterinary scientist trainees (M.S./PhD students) must be not only well qualified, but in-tune with societal demands and changing priorities, in order to advance the profession and lead in the discovery of new knowledge and its practical application to animal, human or environmental health.
In support of our goal to train veterinary academic leaders (1.2.), we have launched this new program referred to as REACH. The program provides 1 year of stipend support for veterinarians who have recently completed their 2 or 3-year clinical residency and are interested in pursuing a PhD or post-doctoral training in translational research. The deadline to apply for REACH program funding is Monday, January 14, 2013. Application materials can be found on this website.
