Description of Externship:
We take externs in anatomic pathology and laboratory animal medicine. We try to organize an appropriate project for the extern to work on with a mentor, but the externs are also encouraged to take part in any diagnostic necropsies of interest. To apply, we ask for a letter of intent, the names of three references we can contact, copies of a resume/CV and transcripts. We can't take anyone for less three weeks and actually prefer four weeks. There are a number of official hoops that have to be jumped to bring anyone in, which we have no control over. The applicants have to have a background check and do a drug test, complete some learning modules on line, and if they are to work with nonhuman primates, have to be tuberculosis tested (one test if they are already current and a two step test if not).
