Student Research Training Programs
Research is an integral part of any professional career. Research conducted by veterinarians is necessary to advance the science of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. In addition, veterinary research would impact wildlife health and conservation, humane treatment of animals, protection of the nation's food supply, and control of zoonotic disease.
The Cummings School encourages and provides a variety of opportunities for DVM students to do research in the clinics, laboratories, or in the field.
