It is specifically intended for California practitioners.

General Application Procedures

  • All applications must be completed electronically. Deadline for applications is December 22, 2022 by 5pm (PDT). 
  • A committee with representatives from the CVMA and the UC Davis faculty will review applications and select finalists. 
  • Selected practitioner fellows are expected to spend a minimum 20 days in the program. Finalists will be paired with a faculty mentor in their area of interest (service) to refine a proposal describing what they hope to achieve during their fellowship. This step is critical so both you and the faculty know what your goals are, and we know those goals can be met within the fellowship experience.
  • The selected practitioner fellows will start their fellowship in August 2023.
