The Johns Hopkins Department of Molecular and Comparative
Pathobiology offers externship programs in both pathology and laboratory
animal medicine to veterinary students who have completed at least
three (3) years of their veterinary training. The laboratory animal
medicine externship consists of clinical experience in our facilities
that have an average daily population of approximately 100,000 animals
and a broad variety of species. The pathology externship consists of
participation in the animal necropsy service for laboratory animals
housed at the University and from the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, the
National Aquarium in Baltimore and local practitioners. Externs work
with ACVP and ACLAM board certified veterinarians, postdoctoral fellows
and residents in our program. Externs are expected to attend
research/training lectures and participate in research and training
activities.

The externships last from two (2) weeks to eight (8) weeks.
Availability will vary with demand and faculty availability. This is a
non-paid externship.

To apply, please submit an application in the form of a letter
stating your goals for pursuing an externship, area of interest, a
current resume and two letters of professional recommendation to support
your application. Please note whether you are interested in pathology
or laboratory animal medicine.
