Veterinary Student Preceptorship
We are not currently accepting applications for this preceptorship.
Our preceptorship is offered to Year IV (or equivalent) veterinary students only, with a serious interest in pathology of zoo animals and wildlife.
We request an absolute minimum of six weeks' participation in our program.
Students will participate in all facets of the pathology program at the National Zoo's facility in Washington, D.C., including gross necropsy, clinical pathology, microscopic analysis of tissues, and case rounds. A special project will be assigned whenever possible. Attendance at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology Wednesday Slide Conference is also possible.
