TRAINING POSITION IN ZOOLOGICAL PATHOLOGY
The Department of Pathobiological Sciences, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Wisconsin - Madison, in association with Research Animal Resources Center, University of Wisconsin - Madison, and the Milwaukee County Zoo is seeking a trainee in Zoo Pathology. Qualified applicants must hold a DVM or equivalent degree from an accredited College of Veterinary Medicine and be eligible for licensure in Wisconsin. Since residency training at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine involves the practice of veterinary medicine on privately owned animals, resident trainees are required to be licensed in the state of Wisconsin at the time they begin their residency program. Prospective resident trainees who are graduates of schools that are not accredited by the AVMA must have passed either the NBE and CCT, or the NAVLE in order to obtain a license in Wisconsin. Graduates of schools that are not AVMA approved may register for the NAVLE examination through a limited number of states in the United States. (Some states require enrollment or completion of the ECFVG or similar program) You may want to visit the following web sites to learn more about licensing examinations and processes: http://www.aavsb.org and http://www.nbec.org .
Preference will be given to individuals with two or more years of residency training in anatomic pathology. The 2-year program, scheduled to begin July 2007 is designed to provide training and experience to prepare the trainee for a career in zoo, wildlife, avian, aquatic or exotic animal pathology and eligibility to sit the certification examination in anatomic pathology of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists. Stipend is $34,000/yr.
