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.
