This residency is a three (3) year program approved by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM). The objectives of the program are to train specialists in veterinary internal medicine and to prepare them for board certification in the ACVIM. Clinical training, clinical and didactic teaching, and research are emphasized to prepare the resident for a career in either academic or specialty practice careers. The residents work closely with ACVIM diplomates in internal medicine, oncology, cardiology and neurology. There is an ample supply of excellent referral cases in internal medicine to challenge the resident and to promote learning. There are also rotations in ophthalmology, dermatology and radiology. Residents are expected to do presentations at residency seminars and grand rounds. Opportunities are provided to participate in classroom teaching and speaking at continuing education meetings. The resident must complete a research project that results in publication.
