The Laboratory Animal Uniform Application Program (UAP) has been replaced with the Veterinary Internship & Residency Matching Program (VIRMP) for the 2013-2014 Application Cycle
Effective immediately, the UAP, originally created to facilitate application to participating Laboratory Animal/Comparative Medicine training programs, has been discontinued and has been replaced with the VIRMP (http://www.virmp.org/) overseen by the American Association of Veterinary Clinicians.he VIRMP is used by many other veterinary specialties to coordinate their resident application and selection process. Applicants must submit their applications and upload required materials to the VIRMP site between October 15, 2013 and November 3 2013*. Applicants must rank the programs in which they have interest no later than January 10, 2014. Match results will be posted on February 3rd, 2014. Details on the matching process are described in detail on the VIRMP site.Additional details regarding the VIRMP application process (from the applicant’s perspective and including the list of participating training programs) will be posted on the ASLAP Career Information webpage (http://www.aslap.org/careers) by 7/16/13. Information specific to participating training programs will be sent directly to each program’s director by that same date.
*Important Note: The application deadline for laboratory animal/comparative medicine training programs is earlier than other internship and residency programs to ensure sufficient time for programs to schedule interviews with prospective candidates.
