Veterinary students get experience working on independent research projects in biomedical and clinical sciences. The program culminates in a research symposium, where students present their research findings to faculty and peers.
Interested first- and second-year veterinary students from any accredited veterinary college in the United States or Canada are encouraged to apply.

Finding a Mentor
Students are encouraged to begin seeking out mentors to outline potential research projects one to two months in advance of the application deadline. Mentors will need to provide a letter of support for students outlining the potential research project and commit to supporting any research expenses (materials, supplies, services and equipment) associated with the project.
