A fellowship is being offered to veterinarians interested in the laboratory diagnosis of hereditary diseases and their control (genetic counseling). There are ample opportunities to interact with clinicians and participate in education programs at the Veterinary Hospital, as well as to pursue independent research projects.
A VMD/DVM or equivalent degree is required, but there is no United States licensure requirement. Health and professional liability insurance and a two-week vacation period are provided. The University of Pennsylvania is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
