Combined ACZM/PhD

The combined Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology PhD / American College of Zoological Medicine Program allows highly select veterinarians to simultaneously pursue rigorous research education as well as specialty status in zoological medicine.  Students in this program complete all of the didactic work of zoological medicine residents in addition to the course work necessary for their PhD preliminary examinations.  Faculty who are Diplomates of the ACZM serve on their PhD committees and  advise on the additional clinical and publication requirements of the combined program.
