ASVCP Education Committee
2019 Resident Externships in Academia
The ASVCP Education Committee is now accepting applications from clinical pathology residents for academic externships in 2019. This program provides $1000 each for two current clinical pathology residents to visit another academic residency program for a 1-2 week long externship. Each residency program has talented faculty with varying caseloads and research interests, and this experience will allow trainees to expand their knowledge and gain invaluable experience. The externship is designed to help offset the costs of travel, food, and lodging. Applicants must be current members of ASVCP.
Complete the Education Committee Externship Application Form including attachment of a combined (single) document consisting of three components:
- Letter of justification from the applicant, explaining clearly the goal(s) of visiting the host institution
- Letter from the resident’s home institution, confirming approval for the externship
- Letter from the hosting institution, confirming approval for the externship
Applications will be accepted through August 2, 2019.
The externship must be completed by July 1, 2020. After completion of the externship, the resident must provide a written summary of the experience to the ASVCP Education Committee. This summary may be partly or fully posted to the ASVCP website and/or News Blast.
Please contact Ashleigh Newman, Chair of the Education Committee, with questions.
