Job Description:

 LARGE ANIMAL MEDICINE RESIDENCY (FOOD ANIMAL EMPHASIS) - The University of Missouri-Columbia, College of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery’s Food Animal service is offering a 3-year Residency (July 17, 2023- July 16, 2026). The 3-year residency will consist of a minimum of 104 weeks of clinical training designed to achieve specialty certification by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, Large Animal Internal Medicine Specialty. Approximately 78 weeks will be assigned to in-house medicine and surgery case management with the remaining 26 weeks of clinical training being derived from electives chosen by the candidate. The remaining time will be spent on scholarly activities such as research, coursework, and vacation (10 days/year). Clinical areas that can be selected for electives include ambulatory practice, production medicine, theriogenology, equine medicine and surgery, and approved externships. Hence, candidates wishing to pursue a career that caters both to equine and food animals can elect to spend a significant portion of their elective time in the equine hospital. The residency is currently approved by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM). The residency emphasizes broad-based practice skills, advanced training and expertise in internal medicine, competence in quantitative concepts related to population medicine, and scholarly productivity. Residents will be assigned to after-hours emergency duty in rotation with other house officers; after-hours calls include both in-clinic and field service. The residency encourages enrollment in a graduate degree program leading to either a MS or PhD degree. An MS degree can be completed during the course of the 3-year residency, but completion of a PhD degree likely will require an additional 1-2 years of coursework and research after completion of the residency. If the candidate elects not to enroll in a graduate program, completion of a scholarly project that leads to a peer-reviewed publication is still required and will be conducted under the advisement of a faculty mentor. Candidates with internship or equivalent private practice experience are encouraged to apply. The resident is reviewed biannually, and the residency is annually renewed based on satisfactory performance in the preceding year. 
Training Required:
 Licensure in the State of Missouri, a Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs permit, and USDA accreditation are required. Licensing fees are approximately $295 plus an additional $25 if a provisional license is required. 
Experience Desired:
 DVM or equivalent plus a minimum of 1-year Internship or 1-year Practice Experience. 
 Salary: Year 1: $35,000; Year 2: $35,500; Year 3: $36,500
