Department of Comparative Medicine

The Department of Comparative Medicine offers a thesis-based M.S. Degree in Comparative Medicine, which often occurs in conjunction with the Clinical Residency Training Program in Laboratory Animal Medicine (LAM).

The overall goal of the MS program is to train graduate students and LAM residents in Comparative Biomedical Research, which frequently involves the utilization of animal models and cutting-edge research techniques to make significant advances in human and animal medicine.  This is accomplished through mentorship with a DCM faculty member and full participation in a hypothesis-based research project that results in the publication of a thesis. The MS program also involves completing required coursework.
