A Multi-Faceted Experience...
Each extern will be assigned to one supervising doctor; yet, externs can work with each of the other practice doctors if the college’s program permits. Regardless of the assigned supervising doctor, our environment will allow each student the opportunity to witness the differences in approach among various practitioners. With a diverse team of veterinarians and three distinct practice locations, our goal is to provide each extern with an array of medical cases, clientele, and medical approaches while continually subscribing to the underlying principles taught in veterinary school.

In addition, the student will have the opportunity toperform a number of surgeries(spays and neuters) on animals from the shelter. The surgeries will be performed in our facility under supervision.
Additionally, our weekly caseload in each clinic exceeds 100 patients per week. The student's responsibility will be to take the initial history of the patient and discuss a tentative diagnostic and treatment plan with the attending doctor.
