2019 Maddie's UW/UCD Shelter Medicine Fellowship Application
The Maddie’s UW / UCD fellowship positions were created to help provide shelter veterinarians with additional training to help them deliver life-saving knowledge and services to our nation’s homeless pets.

Attendance is required at a one week fellowship training ‘Shelter Medicine Intensive’ to work closely with other fellows in the program as well as the UW and UC Davis Shelter Medicine teams and veterinary students. Intensive week this year is August 26- 30, 2019 and will likely be held in Madison, WI. Participation in this training is a requirement of the fellowship.

Please have all 5 documents to upload prepared when completing this application (CV, letter of intent, project proposal, letter of support from shelter management and letter of reference). You will be able to save/edit your application but incomplete applications will not be considered.
