Program Description
The Saint Louis Zoo will be accepting applications for the ACZM-compliant residency in Zoological Medicine, starting in August 2018. This 3 year program receives direct mentorship from three ACZM Diplomates and one Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Pathology. Description: The Saint Louis Zoo veterinary residency is a post-graduate, 3 year appointment designed to develop a board-certified specialist of the American College of Zoological Medicine (ACZM) and a veterinarian who makes significant contributions to the field of zoological medicine. The program emphasizes clinical zoo medicine and the development of a skilled, independently-functioning veterinarian. In addition, a significant program expectation is manuscript preparation and publication, and credentialing and preparation for ACZM certification. The resident’s clinical experience will be through all aspects of providing veterinary care to the Saint Louis Zoo’s large and diverse animal collection, including but not limited to, clinical medicine and diagnostic services, preventive medicine, surgical care, quarantine and pre-shipment testing, and student training. Reappointment for the second and third year of the program is contingent upon successful completion of the previous year and appropriate progress in meeting the requirements for ACZM credentialing and board preparation. Graduates of the residency should be eligible for ACZM credentialing within one year of completing the program.
