The activities of the Center play a vital role in introducing veterinary students to the myriad of career opportunities available to them following graduation. The Center is developing programs to provide post-doctoral training to veterinarians who wish to specialize in a given area or who wish to make a career redirection. It is expected that employment opportunities in the public sector of the profession will continue to expand. Examples of these employment opportunities include:
These organizations employ veterinarians in a wide range of disciplines, such as administration, animal welfare, aquatic medicine, behavioral research, biomedical research, comparative medicine, environmental medicine, epidemiology, food quality and safety, immunology, laboratory animal medicine, medical computing sciences, microbiology, nutrition research, pathology, public health, regulatory medicine, toxicology, tropical medicine, and wildlife management. Veterinary medicine truly is a profession with wide-ranging opportunities. Those who desire to become a part of the profession must be prepared to anticipate and to adapt to society's changing needs. Exciting and fulfilling careers await those who are prepared to meet the challenge. The Center for Public and Corporate Veterinary Medicine is the national resource for educational opportunities other than fee-for-service clinical practice.In addition, the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine and Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine have combined to offer a unique learning experience in Science, Politics and Animal Health Policy. This executive fellowship’s three modules are designed to be interactive and participatory, engaging fellows in current animal health and veterinary issues and honing skills that apply to a variety of situations in public or private veterinary medicine.
