Status of the Coalition, 2017

In response to the 2016 Request for Applications (application deadline 14 October 2016), the Coalition awarded two new 3 year anatomic pathology residency positions as cost-share partnerships with Michigan State University and the University of Guelph. These fellowships will include annual externships at private companies.  The Coalition congratulates these training institutuions and thanks the other training institutions that submitted very competitive applications.

Having awarded these new training positions, the Coalition has decided to suspend further fund raising activities until at least mid-2020.  The economic climate and supply vs demand for veterinary pathologists will be re-evaluated at that time so that the Coalition can determine how to best position itself to meet the future needs of our profession.
