Veterinary Public Health and Preventive Medicine Residency

Veterinary Public Health Residency

The University of Minnesota's veterinary public health and preventive medicine (VPHPM) residency program was founded in 2002 and is the first program in the United States to receive recognition from the American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine (ACVPM). The two-year residency allows early- to mid-career veterinarians to gain specialized training in veterinary public health practice. Currently between six and seven veterinarians are enrolled in the program at any one time. The program draws applicants from around the world. VPHPM residency graduates go on to work with government, industry, and academia with many of the graduates obtaining ACVPM diplomat status within two years of completing their residency.

Over the course of the VPHPM residency, residents are assigned to a variety of projects and activities with an eye toward providing experiences across the full spectrum of teaching, research, and service. They work in close collaboration with University's public health faculty advisors as well as their VPHPM residency mentors. In addition to project work, most VPHPM residents will pursue a masters of public health (MPH) degree taking advantage of the tuition benefit associated with the residency and the world class academic program offered through the School of Public Health. Semi-annual performance reviews are used to monitor progress and provide an opportunity for discussion and feedback.

For more information on the VPHPM residency program contact Co-Directors Dr. Timothy Goldsmith or Dr. Larissa Minicucci.
