How Do I Apply to the Laboratory Animal Medicine MS Program?
Penn State College of Medicine’s Laboratory Animal Medicine MS program requires application through the Veterinary Internship & Residency Matching Program (VIRMP).
All students must submit an application through VIRMP.
Admission is open only to students who have received graduate veterinary degrees (DVM, VMD).
Because of the major commitment that this intensive three-year training program entails, those who accept a residency position may not hold part-time employment or devote significant portions of their time to activities unrelated to the training program.
Oct. 12: Applicants can view programs and begin registering at VIRMP.
Nov. 4: Application deadline; letters of reference and transcripts must also be received by VIRMP.
Jan. 18: Last date for applicant rank order lists to be submitted through VIRMP.
Feb. 11: Match results posted on VIRMP website.
July: Laboratory Animal Medicine MS/Residence program begins.
