Abstract:

The long-term goal of this training program is to increase veterinary research manpower by providing research training to veterinary students. The proposed training program included joint degree programs DVMMPH, DVMMS-CBS and DVMMSLAM and the summer research program. Six trainees have graduated with two serving in the US Army Vet Corp, two engaged in biomedical research and 2 entered private practice. The 23 trainees recruited in the joint degree program are continuing their training and the 14 trainees, recruited in the summer research program, have completed their research projects. One trainee joined the US Army. No major problem was encountered with recruiting or maintaining trainee interests in the training program during the reporting period and hence we plan to continue the program as originally proposed.
