Tisch Summer Fellows: Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine

Tisch College is pleased to partner with the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine to offer unique summer fellowship opportunities for veterinary students. Developed in collaboration with Cummings staff and faculty, these internship positions are designed to complement veterinary students' learning while allowing them to contribute to animal health and have a positive impact on public wellbeing.

Fellows will spend approximately 35 hours/week as an intern during the 10-week program period from June 7, 2021 through August 13, 2021.
