Selecting a Mentor
At the Atlantic Veterinary College, the major focus areas of research are comparative biomedicine, fish health, population health, animal welfare, and infectious diseases/public health. Check the AVC department websites for faculty research interests and current projects. For those applying to VetSRA, click here for a list of faculty interested in mentoring a DVM student for the summer.
You can also regularly check the UPEI Human Resources website for advertised summer student positions offered by AVC researchers. Participation in the Summer Research & Leadership Program is not feasible in every summer position (e.g., positions requiring extensive travel for field work that would make regular attendance in the SRLP activities impossible), so check with the supervisor before applying to SRLP.
