Internship - Residency - Post-graduate Opportunities
DISCLAIMER: While it is the expectation of the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians that institutions offering residencies and internships will responsibly provide residents and interns with valuable educational work experience and close mentorship by an experienced zoological or wildlife veterinarian, the AAZV does not evaluate or monitor individual programs. Therefore, inclusion of a particular program on this website should not be construed as an endorsement by the AAZV of the quality of the educational experience it provides.
(Note: The American College of Zoological Medicine does evaluate and approve residencies based on the quality of the educational experience and mentorship they provide. Several residency programs listed on this website comply with their criteria for ACZM board approved residency programs and are advertised as such. Contact the ACZM for details on these criteria.)
To List a Post-Graduate Education Opportunity:
The following form should be used to initiate or update Post-Graduate Education Opportunities (Internship, Residency). Information provided will be entered into the Educational Opportunities link of the AAZV website. These postings are usually ongoing programs which may or may not have specific application deadlines. If the posting is only meant to be short term and has specific application deadlines, it may be better to post the information as a Job Opportunity on the Job Bank Page. Please allow 2-3 weeks for your posting or changes to a posting to be active on the AAZV website, as the information needs to be reviewed by the Education Committee, and sent to the webmaster for posting. In an effort to keep the list as current as possible, if possible please indicate the deadline date as the same date regardless of the year. An example of this would be "Application deadline is November 15th of each year.” If that is not an option (i.e.: the application deadline varies from year to year), please state the approximate deadline and indicate that the program should be contacted directly to confirm the date each year. An example of this would be "Application deadline is in November of each year, please contact the program to determine the date of the deadline as this may vary from year to year.” If you prefer to list a specific date for each application round, please ensure that you are able to update your posting at least 3 months prior to the deadline.Please fill in all pertinent data. If you are updating and have no changes other than the "last updated" field, then you will only need to fill out the "institution name" and the "last updated" fields before submitting. The rest can be left blank. If you have any changes at all other than the "last updated" field, please fill out the entire form completely at each update.
