Eligibility for the Externship: Veterinary students and veterinarians interested in diagnostic veterinary pathology
Length of Externship: At Least One Week
The caseload here is mostly livestock with a good mix of small animals, zoo, wildlife and the occasional horse and camelid. Fall to Spring (September/October to May/June) tend to be the busier months (these would, thus, be the best times to come), but summer is not too quiet either. Cases typically come from North Dakota and West Minnesota. The lab offers a comprehensive range of diagnostic testing including necropsy, biopsy, toxicology, microbiology including BSL-3 testing, serology and molecular diagnostic including sequencing. An extern will spend most of their time shadowing the pathologist and resident on duty.
Externs need to be rabies vaccinated and have an adequate rabies titer. More information about the lab can be found at www.vdl.ndsu.edu.
Interested applicants should submit a CV and letter of interest to Dr. Deb Chong (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Heidi Pecoraro (email@example.com). Spots will be filled on a first-come basis. Phone 701.231.7521
