Summer Opportunities for Veterinary Students at JHU

Every summer, The Department of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology provides training opportunities in biomedical research, veterinary anatomic pathology and laboratory animal medicine to veterinary students. Three summer programs are available and offerings include opportunities for both research and clinical activities. See below for details:

The Veterinary Research Scholars Program

Sponsored by an NIH T35 grant, this 12 week summer program is available to 1st and 2nd year veterinary students with an interest in biomedical research.
