Laboratory Animal Medicine Preceptorship Program

Veterinary students enrolled in the professional curriculum and postgraduate veterinarians are invited to participate in the program. The Laboratory Animal Medicine Preceptorship Program exposes veterinary students to all aspects of the research environment, including regulatory issues, research support, colony health surveillance, clinical medicine, and surgery. In addition, the Division of Comparative Pathology at TNPRC provides instruction in pathological findings of spontaneous and experimental disease in nonhuman primates to these students. The length of the program varies based on the needs of the student, but ranges from 2-6 weeks. On average, five students per year are mentored through this program.
