Essential Job Duties

The Internal Medicine Clinician Investigator Program provides clinical training in small animal internal medicine and graduate research training toward the PhD degree. The residency portion of the program meets or exceeds the training requirements established by the ACVIM for candidates seeking board certification in Small Animal Internal Medicine. The primary objectives of the program are to develop clinical expertise in veterinary internal medicine, gain experience in didactic and clinical teaching, and become proficient in basic and applied research. The duration of the program varies according to each student’s ability to satisfy program requirements, but will be no less than five years, with the residency component of the program comprising the first three years.
The Clinician Investigator Program is structured and rigorous, requires a team-oriented approach, and embodies a spirit of cooperation amongst clinical and basic science faculty. The program was designed to satisfy the needs of those individuals who are seeking a career in academic veterinary medicine, industry, or government. Successful completion of the program is dependent upon attracting candidates of the highest caliber who are capable of excelling in this demanding program. Because of the breadth and complexity of the program, the clinician investigator will participate in a diverse group of activities with increasing levels of responsibility. Clinical activity is most intensive in the first year of the program and clinical training is as for an Internal Medicine Residency Program. During the second and third years, both clinical and research responsibilities are scheduled. The remaining years of the program are devoted primarily to research activities.

Responsibilities include the supervision and education of veterinary students, interns, and other residents; patient care and client communication; and progressively increasing autonomy in diagnostic and therapeutic patient management. Attendance and participation in daily case rounds, intern/resident rounds, journal club, advanced medicine rounds, and the House Officer Seminar Program are required. Clinician investigators must maintain a case log and endoscopy log to allow the CI and residency committee to determine if seeing an appropriate balance of case material.
Clinician investigators are expected to write at least one first author publication in conjunction with a medicine faculty member. Clinician investigators are expected to gain acceptance into graduate school by January 15th deadline (by year 1 of program), and complete 2-3 laboratory rotations (during years one and two) and identify a graduate mentor by the end of year two.
