STUDENT RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES

COMMITTED TO UNDERSTANDING HOW THE WORLD IS CHANGING

 

The opportunity to participate in real world problem solving the moment you step on campus and gain exposure to research in veterinary medicine

At Ross Vet, we provide a range of opportunities for our students to achieve meaningful veterinary research experiences. These experiences can range from involvement in an approved intramural and/or extramural research project on campus, to working several weeks or months at another institution, program or field investigation during semester breaks or by taking a semester away from the DVM program.

Ross Vet Student Charts Her Own Course

When Sydney Davis first sailed in the Caribbean as a yacht captain, little did she know she would one day study near those very same waters earning her DVM and master’s degree in St. Kitts at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine.

TAKE THE NEXT STEP. GET INVOLVED.

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.

E-mail research@rossvet.edu.kn for an application form. Additionally, you can contact the project’s Principal Investigator (PI).

Annually, Ross Vet hosts a campus-wide event to engage students in research. This year, it will be held from November 1-5, 2021.

 

 

RESEARCH STUDENT SCHOLARS PROGRAM

As a Research Scholar student, you may take a semester off from your veterinary education program to focus on a specific research project working with a Principal Investigator in an area you are interested in. You'll gain an insight on career opportunities in biomedical research through a supportive, mentored research experience in an established laboratory, and through seminars and discussion groups on careers in science.

For information about these opportunities, contact research@rossvet.edu.kn.
