There is a critical shortage of veterinary pathologists in the specialty area of wildlife disease. To address this problem, the Department of Pathology and Disease Investigation offers post-doctoral training in pathology through annually alternating opportunities for residents or pathology fellows. The principal aim of these programs is to build a cadre of experts with the technical skills, knowledge base, and experience required to cultivate successful careers as anatomic veterinary pathologists focused on the diseases of domestic animals, zoo animals and wildlife. Providing this training will allow WCS to remain at the forefront of zoo and wildlife pathology training.
