CAHF research fellowship program
The Companion Animal Health Fund’s research fellowship program has supported the specialized training of more than two dozen graduate students in the past three decades.
This valuable education program has had a significant impact on WCVM’s graduate program and on companion animal health care in several ways:
• The fellowship program pays for or contributes to the annual salary of each CAHF research fellow. That allows WCVM to offer an additional “spot” for a new graduate student each year.
• CAHF research fellows’ studies have led to the development of new diagnostic tools and treatments. Many projects have also served as the basis for larger clinical studies.
• All former CAHF research fellows still contribute to companion animal health care as clinicians, researchers or teachers.
