  • Opportunity at a Glance

    Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) offers a unique program of training on the island of St. Kitts in the Caribbean. A cutting-edge curriculum, with innovative use of technologies and simulations, provides the best possible training for tomorrow’s veterinarians. Students benefit from seven semesters of integrated preclinical and clinical studies at our St Kitts campus, and one year of clinical training at our affiliate veterinary teaching hospitals in the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia.

    A new Research and Pathology building was just inaugurated crating 13,000 sf of research space, including eight laboratories. The site features 2,000 square feet dedicated to pathology, including autopsy and histology suites, a multiheaded microscopy room for 10 observers along with a student viewing gallery and space for small group meetings. The research and pathology sections of the building were designed to BSL-2 biosafety standards.

     

    Our ongoing research focuses on key issues strategically relevant to One Health in tropical and developing countries and include zoonotic diseases, food safety and security, environmental health, and conservation medicine. We prioritize recruitment of talented colleagues and are now seeking a key new member of our team to join us as we develop new programs to best prepare our graduates to face the global opportunities and challenges of veterinary medicine in the 21st century.

     

    The clinical/anatomic pathology internship/MSc degree position is a two-year advanced training program beginning July 1, 2019. This position provides a unique opportunity for training in both clinical and anatomic pathology, as well as an opportunity to earn an MSc degree in a related area such as Public Health, Tropical Animal Health, Conservation Medicine or other research areas supported by RUSVM. The objectives of the internship are partial preparation for ACVP Board Certification and development of skills in teaching and diagnostics in clinical and anatomic pathology. The internship/MSc will prepare the candidate to be a strong contender for competitive residency and research positions internationally.
