The ASVCP Regulatory Affairs Committee is committed to creating opportunities for clinical pathology residents to experience toxicologic and laboratory animal clinical pathology as externs. This year, the ASVCP has allocated funding for housing and travel for clinical pathology residents interested in short-term toxicologic and comparative clinical pathology externships. Residents who apply for this award must first arrange specific dates and times for individualized externship opportunities with the organization they plan to visit and with their residency program coordinator.
A compiled list of specific organizations interested in supporting resident externships is posted at http://www.asvcp.org/stures/ExternshipContacts.cfm. Please note that this list is not restrictive, but indicates the types of institutions that are appropriate for this ASVCP-sponsored externship. Specific guidelines for externships in ‘industrial’ clinical pathology can be found at http://www.asvcp.org/stures/ExternshipGuidelines.cfm.
Application Package Checklist:
Scholarships will be awarded to the top ranking applicants after determining that other funding sources (resident or company funds) are not available for the resident to use for this purpose. Applicants will be notified of the decision by the end of April. Awardees will be expected to complete an online survey ranking their experience and write a short summary of their experience within two weeks of completing the externship.
