The Department of Pathobiology at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge in veterinary and comparative pathology, veterinary infectious diseases and immunology. The OVC Senior Residency position gives exposure to a broad experiential caseload that is expected to aid in the selected candidate’s preparation for any of the certifying examinations for a College of Veterinary Pathologists. In addition, the position allows participation in numerous weekly gross and histopathology rounds, AFIP slide sets, and other boards study materials.
The Senior Resident is expected to be involved in all aspects of anatomic pathology including primary case responsibility, attendance and presentation of case material at rounds (e.g. gross, microscopic/biopsy, and oncology rounds), and various case discussions and presentations. Duties are approximately 50% diagnostic and supervisory (including post mortem) duty, 40% microscopic evaluation of cases, and 10% attendance and presentation at gross and microscopy rounds and involvement in other case discussions and presentations.
The Senior Resident will be supervised by, and work with, a top tier group of anatomic pathologists with ACVP certification, and interact with equally skilled clinical pathologists within the Department of Pathobiology and anatomic and clinical pathologists in the Animal Health Laboratory (totaling 23 Board Certified Pathologists), as well as DVSc students (residents), interns and graduate students and specialists from the OVC Health Sciences Center (HSC).
