As part of the most comprehensive health sciences center in America, the Department of Veterinary Biosciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine at The Ohio State University offers outstanding training opportunities for students whose career goals include specialty education in veterinary clinical pathology and graduate education in Comparative & Veterinary Medicine leading to a PhD. The objective of the clinical pathology program is to provide training in clinical chemistry, cytology, hematology, immunology, surgical pathology and molecular techniques. Trainees are directly involved in the teaching and diagnostic services of the clinical pathology laboratories. Research training for clinical pathology residents is designed to provide experience with molecular biology, transgenic animal pathobiology, virology, biochemistry, immunohistochemistry, gnotobiology, cell culture, and quantitative histomorphometry in investigation of the pathogenesis of disease.
Pathology training utilizes laboratories at Ohio State University which support necropsy, surgical pathology, and clinical pathology services for the large caseload in the Veterinary Medical Center, regional practitioners, the Columbus Zoo, and the University Comparative Pathology & Mouse Phenotyping Shared Resource which provides diagnostic pathology support to the University Laboratory Animal Resources and investigators utilizing animal models of disease with an emphasis on genetically modified mice. Characterization of genetically-modified mice is supported by an NIH training grant and draws upon submissions to the Phenotyping Shared Resource. Areas of research include cellular and molecular biology, oncology, microbiology and immunology, pathophysiology, and epidemiology. Trainees may interact with Ohio Department of Agriculture scientists, USDA/APHIS Foreign Animal Disease specialists and the University’s multidisciplinary faculty to identify a range of research needs in the area of emerging diseases and agents of bioterrorism.
Applications for position(s) to commence summer 2014 should be submitted by October 1st, 2013. Completed applications will be reviewed upon receipt.
Upon acceptance into the Combined Clinical Pathology Residency/Graduate Program, applicants will then be asked to complete an OSU Graduate School Application and a background check.
