The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine
Osteosarcoma - Prostate Cancer - Breast Cancer - Lymphomas - Melanoma
Did you know that these spontaneous cancers in dogs and cats share many features with human cancers? Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hypothermia and immunotherapy are all used to fight cancer in the pet animal, and many naturally occurring cancers in pets closely resemble human cancer and provide meaningful systems for cancer research. Veterinarian scientists are uniquely qualified to be comparative oncologists - researchers who study naturally-occurring cancers in animals as models for human disease. The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine provides an outstanding environment for the training of future veterinary scientists through our combined VMD-PhD (DVM-PhD) program. It's an excellent way for you to continue your education while impacting the future of medicine for humans and all species. Find out more at
