Combined Residency in Anatomic Veterinary Pathology and Biomedical (Cancer) Research Training

October 27, 2010
The Beatson Institute, Glasgow Centre for Cancer Research and the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, UK are offering a combined 4-year program in experimental and comparative pathology.
The program will be run within the new Cancer Research UK West of Scotland Cancer Centre (CR-UK WSCC), which brings together several large partners including the Institute of Cancer Studies encompassing basic and translational research at the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research and the University of Glasgow Division of Cancer Sciences and Molecular Pathology, the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre and the Institute of Comparative Medicine (Veterinary Medicine and Pathology). The CR-UK WSCC brings together scientists, veterinary and medical pathologists and clinicians to promote and develop the very best in cancer research in an interactive environment that includes the largest medical pathology unit in Europe. The Beatson Institute and School of Veterinary Medicine are closely located on the same campus (Garscube Estate) in the University of Glasgow.
This program will involve:
(1) An initial 1-year Research Masters degree, to be completed on a basic research project or projects involving use of in vivo models for cancer research.
(2) A 3-year residency program of intensive training in all aspects of veterinary anatomic pathology, designed to fulfill requirements for sitting the certifying examinations of the European and/or American Colleges of Veterinary Pathologists.
During this program the Resident will contribute to surgical biopsy and necropsy services under supervision. A wide variety of cases spanning many disease processes are submitted to this large veterinary diagnostic laboratory including domestic, wildlife, exotic, and other species. The Resident will also participate in formal pathology-related training sessions including journal clubs, slide seminars and clinical-pathology rounds, and assist with teaching of final-year veterinary students. The program will involve the unique opportunity of obtaining some experience in medical pathology (i.e. human disease/cancer).
During the residency there will be continuing involvement with pathology reporting to biomedical researchers in the Beatson Institute.
Financial support will be provided for attendance at appropriate conferences on an annual basis.
