LSU House Officers complete internships and residencies

For Immediate Release:  June 30, 2020

BATON ROUGE—Veterinary students and clinicians who wish to specialize in a particular area and become board certified participate in the Veterinary Internship and Residency Matching Program (VIRMP). The American Association of Veterinary Clinicians sponsors the VIRMP to expedite the selection of interns and residents for participating veterinary schools, colleges, and institutions.

The VIRMP follows principles established by the Physicians National Intern and Resident Matching Program and is structured on an established and functioning system. The prospective intern or resident chooses the school of his or her choice and, because of the marked competition for positions, the student is advised to apply to more than one institution. The student fulfills the application criteria of each institution and submits his/her applications directly to the institutions. The institution, through its selection process, ranks the applicants according to its criteria. Some internships and residencies are available outside of the VIRMP. Congratulations to the following students, House Officers and alumni who received internships or residencies outside of the match program.
