Our 2-3 week program is designed to provide interested third and fourth year veterinary students to a broad exposure to all facets of laboratory animal medicine and its various disciplines. This includes: research, management, clinical medicine, diagnostic services, husbandry practices, experimental surgery, pathology and phenotyping.
This program works in conjunction with our established Laboratory Animal Residency Program.
The animal facilities at OSU encompass 17 separate buildings with 200,000 square feet of animal space. The range of species is extremely diverse including mice (many GEMs), rats, farm animals, primates, dogs, cats, and various exotics. The research programs cover such areas as cardiovascular disease, cancer, immunology genetics, virology, and neuropsychology. This provides the trainees unique exposure to a very diverse and vigorous research community.
Students are asked to bring laptops and will have access to on site computers when available. Laboratory animal texts, journals,CDs and manuals are available in the ULAR library.
8 hrs/day; 5 days per week
