Research Volunteers have no specified time commitment to a project and will likely not have a focused personal project on which to work. There is no stipend and no expectation of presentation of results at a Ross Vet forum. The Research Volunteer position is designed to allow students to observe certain aspects of how research is conducted.
Research Assistants (RAs) devote up to 25 hours of paid time to a specific project during a semester. Upon completion, the RA is expected to present the results of their work at a Ross Vet forum. If judged of high quality, the RA will be eligible for a travel grant to allow them to present their work at a scientific conference. The RA position is designed to give students a hands-on introduction to independent research
All DVM students engaging in research must undergo a series of trainings before they are allowed to work in laboratories.

Annually, Ross Vet hosts a campus-wide event to engage students in research. Stay tuned for upcoming One Health Research Week dates.
