Residency Training in Veterinary Oncology at the University of Minnesota

Morris Animal Foundation, through the generous sponsorship of a philanthropic donor, will support a three-year residency training program in veterinary and comparative oncology at the University of Minnesota. The clinical training component is designed according to the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine guidelines and will emphasize diagnosis and care of companion animals with cancer. The research component will provide the trainee with fundamental exposure to the laboratory setting and opportunities to pursue an advanced degree or enter a fellowship program. The overall goal of the comparative oncology training program at the University of Minnesota is to prepare new scientists for careers in clinical academic practice and cancer biology research as a means to address the shortage in these critical areas of the profession. Financial support for new talent is an investment in future cures and treatments for cancer patients.
