The Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases (IIAD), in collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim – Veterinary Public Health, is hosting two veterinary student internship opportunities in 2018.

The Institute will host two students with interests and experience in veterinary medicine and/or international agricultural issues. Veterinary students of any year or classification and graduate students are eligible to apply to the program. Selected interns will be matched with mentors for an approximate ten-week summer internship. Interns will gain hands-on experience while working on projects related to the economics and detection, control, and mitigation of high consequence transboundary animal diseases.  For this opportunity; there will be two internships; one focused on an international veterinary/agricultural topic and one focused on a domestic veterinary/agricultural topic.
