ASVCP Scholarship Application for Clinical Pathology Resident Externship Training 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 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.

Externship Contacts:

Below is a list of individuals in industry that can be contacted for possible externship experiences.  The selection of candidates and the duration of the externship will be determined by the hosting company.  Due to the sensitive nature of work that is performed at these companies background checks, fingerprinting, confidentiality agreements and/or health screening may be performed prior to acceptance.  The externships are not funded positions and residents are encouraged to seek funding through their academic institutions for travel and boarding.
