The extern’s activities depend upon work in progress during the time period. Students are exposed to a broad variety of experiences and will participate in wildlife mortality investigations and ongoing wildlife disease research. When field trips are available, participation is expected. Externs are expected to respond to questions pertaining to assigned readings, lectures, and field experiences. Informal lectures and PowerPoint sessions are presented as time permits. The externship program is a team-teaching effort. The extern will be assigned to various staff members during the program. It is beneficial for the program if the student presents on a topic of interest to the department during his/her stay. Funding will become available from an endowment in Fall 2005 to help defray the cost of coming to the Department, and for accommodation. Until that time, students are responsible for their expenses. Housing can be difficult to locate in Laramie during academic sessions (late Jan – early May; late August – late December). Faculty members can sometimes assist students secure university accommodation either through the university’s student housing unit (Residence Life and Dining Services – http://uwadmnweb.uwyo.edu/reslife-dining/) or through other entities on campus that have housing for visiting scholars. The latter is most likely to be secured if we are contacted well in advance of your proposed start date.
