Abstract : The long-term goal of this training program is to increase veterinary research manpower by providing research training to veterinary students. This program has been training 83, 21, 26 and 10 DVM students in summer research, DVM/MS-LAM, DVM/ MPH and DVM/MS-CBS programs, respectively since 2007 with 55 students still at TCSVM. The graduates of these programs are serving in US Army Veterinary Corps (4), enrolled in LAM residency program (6), conducting biomedical research (9), received Fogarty Clinical fellowship (2), enrolled in PhD program (5) or joined government agencies (2). The trainees published 5 peer-reviewed manuscripts and presented 22 abstracts in national and international scientific meetings. The goal of the program is considered to have been achieved as evidenced by the number of trainees recruited in the program and the activities of the graduates.
