Veterinary students from AVMA-accredited schools are welcome to apply for externships that include rotations through hospital services, observing alongside our specialists, senior emergency clinicians, residents and interns. Externships vary in length and structure depending on the hospital and the requirements of the extern’s veterinary school. Students are welcome to attend most lectures, journal clubs and rounds during their stay.
Veterinary technology students from accredited schools also are welcome. We are able to accommodate students with flexible schedules, as most of our hospitals are open 24/7. Students will work closely with our clinicians, our talented team of VTSs, licensed technicians and assistants.
Prospective externs should reach out individually to the program coordinators listed below for more information.
