The Veterinary Internship Residency Matching Program, or commonly referred to as the “VIRMP”, is a very interesting application process for selecting veterinarians for advanced training.

For many applicants, this is the first (and probably the only times) in your life when you will be applying for a job (i.e. internship) but may never visit the job-site, never have an interview, and may never speak to your boss before receiving an offer letter.
