Institute for Postgraduate Education Fund

Training the veterinary leaders of tomorrow

Postgraduate Education FundAt the heart of The AMC is our longstanding mission to foster the next generation of leaders in veterinary medicine. Its teaching hospital, the Elmer & Mamdouha Bobst Hospital, is the largest and busiest veterinary hospital in the United States and, as such, provides a unique learning environment. With its doors open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, no other training facility compares in terms of the volume and variety of cases presented or the extent of exposure to veterinary specialists.

Graduate veterinarians come to The AMC for year-long internships to acquire advanced training. For those seeking to specialize or pursue clinical research, The AMC offers residencies of one to four years. Moreover, The AMC conducts or sponsors more than 300 hours of continuing education lectures each year.

The total annual cost of The AMC’s postgraduate program exceeds $2.5 million, including salaries for approximately 25 interns and about 25 residents.

Since clinic fees do not cover all of the expenses associated with training, The AMC depends upon the generosity of our friends and patrons to maintain its position as one of the nation’s foremost educational institutions in the field. The AMC has committed to substantially raising its Scholarship Fund to a level that can help it continue to attract and engage top caliber interns and residents.

For those who would like to support this critical program, an array of giving opportunities are available to choose from, ranging from annual scholarships to endowed scholarship funds. For more information about sponsoring an intern or resident, or establishing a named scholarship fund, please contact the Development Office at (212) 329-8660.
