Veterinary Clinical Sciences Department Announces New House Officers
Each year, the VCS Department participates in the Veterinary Internship & Residency Matching Program (VIRMP) sponsored by the American Association of Veterinary Clinicians. The match program expedites the selection of interns and residents for participating practices and colleges. Each year graduating veterinary students and veterinarians wanting to continue their formal training select and rank programs through the VIRMP website. The institution or private practice then ranks the applicants based on program criteria. The VIRMP uses sophisticated computer software to match applicants and programs in a way that ensures each receives the highest available option on their rank order list.
In Summer of 2013, seventeen new house officers will join the College of Veterinary Medicine Small Animal Hospital. New interns are Vincent Baldanza, Ann Heffernan, Katherine Meyers, Laura Rice, Lisa Riggs, Kristin Smith, and Katherine Stroda. Kristin Barncord joins the Cardiology service as a first year resident. Erin Ryan joins Medical Imaging. Efa Llewellyn and Katie Moyer join Emergency Critical Care. Abigail Bongard, Yoojin Kim, and Justin Wakayama join Internal Medicine. Rickard Kohler and Jeff McLellan join Surgery. Daniel Heinrich joins Clinical Pathology.
The Small Animal Medicine and Surgery Rotating Internship is a one year program that provides a broad background of experience in managing many problems affecting companion animals. In addition to rotations in internal medicine, surgery, emergency medicine, and general practices, interns have the opportunity to rotate through specialty areas including anesthesiology, critical care, behavior, cardiology, dermatology, neurology, nutrition, oncology, ophthalmology, theriogenology, and dentistry.
Residency programs are designed to provide advanced training and prepare participants for specialty board certification in a mentored environment that promotes teaching, service, and research. The College of Veterinary Medicine offers many opportunities for residents to pursue scholarly and clinical activities, continuing education, and advanced studies. Our graduate school offers Masters and Doctoral degrees in Veterinary Medicine with specialty tracks in infectious disease, comparative medicine and pathology, population medicine, and surgery/radiology/anesthesiology.
Individuals interested in applying for an internship or residency in the Veterinary Clinical Sciences Department should register with the Veterinary Internship & Residency Matching Program at www.virmp.org.
