Research, Clinical, & Outreach Student Opportunities
The CVM Summer Scholars Research Program at Iowa State University exposes veterinary students to careers in research. Interest in these careers is stimulated by providing active research experience through a summer project and by exposing students to successful role models in both the academic and industry side of animal health and biomedical research.

College Graduate Programs for DVM Students
Assistantships are not available during the fall and spring due to the inability to fulfill the required research hours while enrolled in the veterinary professional curriculum.
Departmental Graduate Programs
Mentorships provide opportunities for students to experience professional life by working with veterinarians or animal health professionals who've agreed to serve as mentors. Mentorships may be of variable lengths of time. Departments and Centers also provide related job experience opportunities.
