Application procedures and deadlines

Application for residency and internship programs must be submitted through the American Association of Veterinary Clinicians Veterinary Internship and Residency Matching Program. Visit the VIRMP website for complete information, including deadlines and application forms.

At this time, the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine is only able to consider candidates from the US or Canada. Candidates must possess a DVM or VMD degree. A Masters degree is not required. Selection for the program is based on professional performance, academic record, and communication skills. Assessment is based on letters of recommendation, communication with previous employers or others having knowledge of the candidate's professional performance, transcripts, and candidate interviews. Candidates may choose to visit facilities and meet program faculty. Visits typically are limited to one day. If you would like to arrange a visit, contact the department with your proposed date of visit.
