Requirements and deadlines for application

The MU CMP uses the Veterinary Internship & Residency Matching Program (VIRMP). Requirements for application include:

1. Standard VIRMP Application Packet

  • VIRMP Application
  • Veterinary School Official Transcript from University Registrar
  • Personal Statement
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • 3-4 Standardized Letters of Reference

2. Additional Requirements for the Program

  • Candidates must have a DVM or VMD degree (or equivalent), meet admission requirements of the MU Graduate School, and have or be pursuing a licence to practice veterinary medicine in  the sate of their choice.  The majority of funded slots require US citizenship or permanent residency.

3. Deadlines for Application 

  • Beginning October 12, 2018 but no later than November 4, 2018 11:59 PM EST  applicants should complete their online application.  As this deadline is distinct from other residency specialties participating in the VIRMP, applicants should contact their references and registrar to ensure that letters of support and transcripts are submitted ahead of the 11/04/18 deadline.
  • The CMP will review applications in mid-November and invite candidates for interviews to be held December 8-10.  For candidates invited to interview with the MU CMP, it is highly recommended that you participate; therefore, you are encouraged to save these dates.  Conflicts for invited candidates who absolutely cannot attend the interview will be addressed on an individual basis.

***Save the date***  Future interview dates are December 7-9, 2019
