Program Goals:
The Johns Hopkins Department of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology invites applications for our 4-year postdoctoral fellowship (research emphasis). The successful candidate will receive 3 years of outstanding research training in a discipline of their choice. Research training is preceded by one year of intensive training in anatomic pathology in preparation for certification by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP). This training is comparable to residency/PhD programs offered at veterinary schools, but is distinguished by the broader research opportunities afforded by a large medical institution and the opportunity to pursue a PhD in a stellar JHU graduate program.
The Johns Hopkins Department of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology is accepting applications for our three-year anatomic pathology postdoctoral fellowship program for veterinarians. Funded by Research Animal Resources, this program provides outstanding anatomic pathology training, and prepares the resident to fulfill the requirements for certification by the American College of Veterinary Pathology (ACVP).
Program Strengths:
This is a 2-part program: three years of research training, funded by the National Institutes of Health, preceded by a year of pathology training funded by Research Animal Resources. During the first year the postdoctoral fellows gain outstanding clinical experience in anatomic pathology through gross and microscopic examination of cases from the JHU animal colonies, local veterinary practitioners, the Maryland State Laboratory, the Maryland Zoo and the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Didactic training consists of weekly lectures and pathology seminars plus peer-mentored boards study, gross and histopathology practice and journal review. In years 2 to 4, trainees participate in full-time mentored basic or applied research in a discipline of their choice. Postdoctoral fellows may pursue a PhD concurrent with their research training, finishing their PhD after completing the pathology fellowship.

Postdoctoral Fellows gain practical and diverse experience in anatomic pathology, including phenotyping and pathology of genetically engineered rodents, through gross and microscopic examination of pathology cases from the Johns Hopkins University animal colonies, local practitioners, the Maryland Zoo and the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Didactic training consists of weekly lectures, slide review, and seminars. Postdoctoral Fellows work alongside other trainees in peer-mentored boards study, gross and histopathology practice and journal review. Postdoctoral Fellows also participate in the medical school's pathology service and conduct hypothesis-driven research.
