Extern With Us!

The externship program is for students currently enrolled at a veterinary school. The purpose of this two-week program is to gain real-world experience in veterinary medicine, and to see how a large private practice functions. Some of the goals of the program is to work on: history taking, develop/improve physical examination technique, interpretation of diagnostics, creation of problem and differential diagnoses lists, treatment plan creation, anesthesia plan creation, sterile technique, cost of care, and quality of life discussions/euthanasia. This experience provides one-on-one instruction.
