Veterinary Residency Program in Wildlife Health Management

Dr. Émilie L. Couture, former resident at the Quebec Regional Centre, and Stéphane Lair, regional director and mentor of the residency program, examining a beluga whale calf found dead in the St. Lawrence estuary. Dr. Couture is currently a staff veterinarian working for the CWHC.

The CWHC Quebec Regional Centre, located at the Université de Montréal, is offering a 3-year residency program in Wildlife Health Management. This intensive clinical / paraclinical training, offered in collaboration with the Zoo de Granby, meets the requirements of the American College of Zoological Medicine, targeting the Wildlife Health certifying examination. The resident will participate in the activities of the CWHC Regional Centre at the Faculté de médecine vétérinaire. This centre offers expertise in wildlife pathology and clinical services in wildlife health. Rotations in the Service de médecine zoologique (Clinique des oiseaux de proie), the Zoo de Granby and some governmental agencies are also part of the program. The resident is required to complete a research project in the field of wildlife health management. The realization in parallel of a M.Sc. degree in wildlife epidemiology is highly recommended. An optional year of fellowship could be available at the end of the program.
