Laboratory Animal Medicine
Laboratory Animal Medicine (LAM) is a Division in the Department of Pathobiology at Penn Vet. Our faculty and clinical veterinarians advise scientists how to improve their experimental models and participate in collaborative research projects. Our service role for the University of Pennsylvania is to care for and oversee the health, care and use of all animals used for research and teaching on Philadelphia and New Bolton Center campuses. We also provide a three-year residency training in laboratory animal medicine. Our residency training is recognized by an AVMA specialty organization, the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM) and assists veterinarians in qualifying to take the ACLAM board examination.
