ASPCA Veterinary Forensic Sciences Training Program
Location: Gainesville, Florida
DVM or equivalent
We are excited to offer licensed veterinarians an introduction to medicolegal investigations and forensic case management through one-on-one training. The AVFSC was the first forensic laboratory in the US dedicated to animal cruelty casework involving companion animals.
Our diverse team composed of 4 forensic veterinarians, 2 crime scene analysists, and 1 forensic veterinary technician will empower you to prevent and respond to animal cruelty within your community.
Intro to Medicolegal Investigations
Since veterinary forensics is not routinely included within the veterinary curriculum, this program is designed to provide veterinarians with these the necessary skills.
Forensic Case Management
Learn the basics of forensic casework, such as identification of evidence, collection, documentation, maintenance, and follow up.
Across the US, the ASPCA® employs hundreds of veterinarians and veterinary technicians at stationary and mobile clinics, temporary shelters, forensic labs, and remotely in consultative roles with animal shelters and veterinary practices.In fact, 1 out of every 10 staff members at the ASPCA is a licensed veterinarian, making the ASPCA the ideal training ground for veterinary and veterinary technician students and DVMs seeking continuing education. We invite you to explore the wide range of opportunities.
