American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine recognizes College of Medicine training program

The American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM) recognized Penn State College of Medicine’s Master of Science in Laboratory Animal Medicine program for the quality and consistency of its training.

The recognition is part of ACLAM’s efforts to ensure programs have the ability to prepare trainees, typically graduate veterinarians, for the ACLAM certifying examination and careers in laboratory animal medicine. Program directors submit annual updates and every three years provide ACLAM a full report including results of a required systematic program review.

“Recognition by ACLAM is evidence that our program has the faculty, curriculum and resources necessary to produce veterinary professionals who provide superior care to laboratory animals,” said Tiffany Whitcomb, program director and professor of comparative medicine. “Our program supports many research projects across the College of Medicine and health system. I applaud the efforts of the faculty and staff who play a part in not only training the next generation of laboratory animal medical professionals, but also serve as role models of the highest ethical standards when it comes to animal welfare.”
