Educational Support

WATCVM's Rosenburg Educational Scholarship assists veterinarians in developing nations with a per capital income of less than $8,000 (USD) to become educated in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM). The Rosenburg Scholarship assists students with paying the cost of tuition and helps ease the financial burden many veterinarians in developing countries face.

As more veterinarians become educated in TCVM, we hope this empowers them to spread their knowledge about TCVM to veterinarians in their home country and encourage more veterinarians to become TCVM vets.

About Dr. Stuart Rosenburg

The Rosenburg Scholarship was created in honor of Dr. Stuart Rosenburg, an exceptional veterinarian, leader and friend. At the age of nine, Dr. Rosenburg knew he wanted to be a veterinarian. He graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Animal Bioscience and later graduated from the University of Tennessee as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. He was a zoo veterinarian at Silver Springs Attraction and the Lowry Park Zoo, and he was also the longtime owner of Bayshore Animal Clinic. Dr. Rosenburg was a leader in the veterinary community. He taught hundreds of veterinarians at the Chi Institute and frequently published in both AAZV and AAVMA. He had a love for adventure, skydiving, foreign travel, scuba diving and college football.

He was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and was expected to have only a few months left to live. He fought the disease for two years before passing at age 46. Throughout his life, he advocated for and taught others about TCVM; this scholarship will continue the work that he began. He is survived by his loving wife Gayle and many friends who remember him fondly.

Dr. Das' Interview (First Awardee)

Because of donors like you, Dr. Bhajan Das, the first recipient of the Rosenburg Scholarship, was able to further his education and enhance his career. Dr. Das is a teacher in the Department of Medicine and Surgery at the Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Sciences University in Bangladesh. Now that he has learned about acupuncture, he plans to teach others at his university.

We spoke with him after he attended his first on-site class in Guangzhou, China in May 2015. “I am a teacher… so hopefully our patients and our students can benefit from my knowledge,” he explained. He plans to share what he has learned with his university and hopes to implement new programs and internships. “Without this scholarship, I could not think to attend the program,” he said.

With your support, veterinarians like Dr. Das can further their education to help more animals and spread TCVM awareness.
