3-Year Residency in Comparative PathologyJob Description
The Johns Hopkins Department of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology is accepting applications for our three-year Anatomic Pathology Residency Program for veterinarians. This program provides outstanding anatomic pathology training with emphasis on phenotyping and pathology of genetically engineered rodents and prepares the resident to fulfill the requirements for certification by the American College of Veterinary Pathology (ACVP). Residents gain practical and diverse experience in anatomic pathology through gross and microscopic examination of pathology cases from the Johns Hopkins University animal colonies, from local practitioners and from the Maryland Zoo and National Aquarium in Baltimore. Trainees participate in the medical school’s pathology curriculum and work closely with departmental faculty, which includes six ACVP Diplomates, four ACLAM Diplomates, and eight comparative medicine scientists. Diagnostic laboratories include necropsy, histology, clinical pathology, and state-of-the-art phenotyping and small animal imaging cores. The program also provides opportunities for research collaborations tailored to the trainee’s interests with faculty in the department and the School of Medicine. Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology faculty conduct research in retrovirology, neuropathology, vascular biology, infectious disease, carcinogenesis, rodent phenotyping and several other fields of experimental pathology.
