Residency training at K-State’s Veterinary Health Center (VHC) is a competitive advanced training program for veterinarians pursuing specialty training towards board certification. Residents work in the VHC for three years. They see patients with board-certified specialists, help with veterinary student education and training; conduct research and complete graduate coursework. Residents receive a modest stipend. To successfully complete the program, residents must take classes, present research at conferences and complete extensive board certification examinations. These activities require funding. Your support will ease the financial burden of these young veterinarians and help attract the best and brightest to K-State.
