Externship Opportunities

STP Externship Scholarships—The STP is offering scholarships for trainees (residents, professional students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows) interested in externships in toxicologic pathology. Scholarships of $1,000 are to cover travel and lodging expenses for trainees wishing to gain experience in toxicologic pathology. Externship application materials are available online through the STP ( or the ACVP student externship page, with applications considered in the fall (October 1 deadline) and spring (March 1 deadline).

Priority will be given to applicants that have arranged externships that broaden the student’s pathology experience in industrial and toxicologic pathology. Applicants are encouraged to consider externships in various toxicologic pathology environments including academic, government, industrial, pharmaceutical, research, and regulatory opportunities. The ACVP Externship Center and STP student page contain lists of externship opportunities, but keep in mind these are not all-inclusive and quality externships are available outside of those on the lists.
