This one to three year program is designed for veterinary pathologists who seek additional experience in pathology of nondomestic animals. Qualifications include a DVM or equivalent degree, and at least two years of formal pathology residency training. The fellowship offers unique opportunities for development of diagnostic skills in anatomic and clinical pathology of nondomestic species, as well as collaborative research opportunities. Fellows will gain an understanding of the ways pathology findings influence animal management in a large and diverse zoological collection.

The fellowship includes a stipend and excellent benefits, attendance at scientific meetings, and generous annual leave. All necropsy attire and laundry are provided. Work schedules rotate and include weekend duty.

Fellowships of up three years are available on a rotating basis. Beginning in July 2017, we will be seeking qualified candidates for the fellowship. For more information, email pathology@sandiegozoo.org. To apply, please check back with us later this year using our Open Positions link.
