The Tri-Institutional Training Program in Laboratory Animal Medicine and Science is dedicated to providing qualified veterinarians with the knowledge and technical skills necessary to develop a successful career in laboratory animal medicine and science in an academic or industrial setting. The program meets the training requirements prescribed by and is accredited by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine.
Postdoctoral fellows gain broad exposure to the animal resource and research programs at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, The Rockefeller University, and Weill Cornell Medical College, the three participating organizations that make up the Tri-Institutional community. The three-year program consists of two major components: clinical, management, and administrative training and research training. In addition, fellows receive exposure to regulatory and policy issues by participating in the activities of each of the three participating institutions' Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees. Knowledge and skills are gained through both experiential and didactic activities.
