Applications are invited for a residency (three-year postgraduate training programme) in veterinary anatomic pathology that will be shared between the RVC and The Donkey Sanctuary. The successful applicants will enrol onto a Masters of Veterinary Medicine (MVetMed) programme whilst receiving advanced training in diagnostic gross pathology and histopathology, with specialisation in Donkey/Equine pathology. Residents engage in teaching of final year veterinary students on rota with faculty staff, and progressively assume independent reporting of diagnostic anatomic pathology cases under faculty supervision. Residents are also involved in scientific research and will be expected to submit manuscripts for publication based on their research work during the three-year programme. This programme aims to prepare residents for careers as veterinary anatomic pathologists, and to successfully complete the anatomic pathology certifying examination administered by The American or European College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP/ECVP).

This residency is open to veterinary graduates holding a degree registrable with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. The tax-free stipend for the Residency starts at £25,700 per annum (subject to review), and increases by annual increments conditional to satisfactory progress and assessment.
The expected start date for the successful candidate will be 1st July 2024.
