Residency Training in Oncology

Educating Leaders in Oncology and Oncology Research

The PCOP is integrally involved in educating and training the veterinary oncology team of the future. This includes the education of veterinary students, veterinary technology students, and veterinary medical residents. Currently, three veterinary medical oncology residents work in the program. These individuals have already completed a DVM degree, have internship and/or veterinary practice experience, and have a passion for furthering their education in veterinary oncology. The medical oncology residency is a three-year educational experience that includes mentored work in the clinics, classroom studies combined with a non-thesis masters degree program, seminars and lectures, and special projects relating to veterinary and comparative oncology. Following completion of the program, residents are expected to meet the eligibility criteria to become board certified veterinary oncologists by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.
