Residency and Internship Programs
From anesthesiology to zoo pathology, internships and residencies at the College of Veterinary Medicine engage students in real-world health issues, linking biomedical research with practical applications to improve lives.
The people, programs, and facilities at Illinois provide a fertile environment for individuals seeking to develop research and case management skills in a particular area. All three academic department offer residency programs. Most of these will involve students with the day-today activity of the college’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital or Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory.
