Residency Program in Wildlife and Aquatic Health Management, University of Montreal

This residency is a 3-year, full time, post-graduate program of 108 credits. A specialized study diploma (D.E.S.) is awarded on completion of the program. The intensive training is concentrated in the field of wildlife health management and aquatic animal medicine, including diagnostic pathology, wildlife medicine, epidemiology and veterinary care of aquatic animals in a captive setting. There is additional training in other selected specialties, in order to meet, as much as possible, the requirements of the American College of Zoological Medicine. The resident will participate in the activities of two entities: The Centre québécois sur la santé des animaux sauvages of the Faculté de médecine vétérinaire (CQSAS) and the Zoo de Granby. The CQSAS offers veterinary expertise to various governmental and non-governmental agencies involved in wildlife protection in Quebec, and provides veterinary services for the Aquarium du Québec and the provincial fish hatcheries. Approximately 20% of the programme will involve direct on-site participation to the veterinary service of the Zoo dege Granby. The resident is required to complete a research project in the field of wildlife health or aquatic animal medicine. Residents are eligible for 3 weeks of holidays per year which will be determined by the consultation committee and the CQSAS supervisor. Any professional activities performed outside the residency program must be declared to the CQSAS supervisor.
