ASVCP Regulatory Affairs Committee
2020 Resident Externships in Industry
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 travel and lodging for clinical pathology residents interested in short-term (1-4 week) toxicologic and laboratory animal (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.
Externships during your residency are great opportunities to learn about careers in other exciting fields of clinical pathology. Read about extern experiences in Externship Reports.
Specific guidelines for externships in toxicologic and laboratory animal (comparative) clinical pathology can be found at https://www.asvcp.org/page/RAC_ExternshipGuidelines.
Examples of organizations interested in supporting resident externships are posted at https://www.asvcp.org/page/RAC_ExternshipContacts. Please note that this list is not restrictive, but indicates the types of institutions that are appropriate for this ASVCP-sponsored externship.
The 2020 Call for Applications is closed (deadline July 1, 2020). Thank you for your interest! Applicants will be notified of decisions in August.
