The College of Veterinary Medicine offers MS and PhD degrees in two programs:
Veterinary Medicine (VMED)
Comparative and Molecular Biosciences (CMB)
CVM Graduate Program News
The College of Veterinary Medicine held its annual commencement on Saturday, May 11. Seven Ph.D recipients and one M.S. recipient from the Comparative and Molecular Biosciences and Veterinary Medicine graduate programs participated in the ceremony. Congratulations to all of our graduate students who completed their Ph.D. and M.S. degrees throughout the year!

Congratulations to CVM Recipients of 2013-2014 Doctoral Dissertation Fellowships
Comparative and Molecular Biosciences PhD students Annette McCoy (advised by Dr. Molly McCue) and Kevin Lang (advised by Dr. Tim Johnson) have been awarded 2013-2014 Doctoral Dissertation Fellowships by the UMN Graduate School. This is truly an honor for them and for our graduate programs. Congratulations to these students and their advisors on this outstanding recognition.
Call for Applications: Postdoctoral Training Program in Comparative Medicine and Pathology
We are now accepting applications from veterinarians seeking state-of-the-art research training in an NIH postdoctoral training program. The goal of this program is to provide students with sufficient broad based knowledge, quality communication skills, and advanced research training essential for a career as an independent investigator. The faculty mentors in the program represent a diverse group of disciplines including pharmacology, cell biology, infectious disease, neurobiology, physiology, genetics, and molecular biology. Trainees who do not already hold a PhD degree will be strongly encouraged to pursue a PhD degree in the Comparative Molecular Biosciences (CMB) graduate program.

Check Out The Epi Journal Club
The focus of the Epi Journal Club - initiated Fall Semester 2010 - is on epidemiologic methods rather than specific research topics. Each week we are joined by one faculty member to discuss the epidemiologic methods presented in one journal article. Some topics discussed so far are molecular and spatial methods and risk analysis.
The Epi Journal Club is open to all grad students - VMED or CMB. We usually meet at 4:00 on the first and third Wednesdays of the month.
If you would like to be on the mailing list for the journal club, please email CMB PhD student, Tiffany Wolf, DVM at email@example.com.
CVM Graduate Students are Driven to Discover
