Paid Small Animal Student Externship Near Little Rock, AR; $250/wk Stipend; Housing Included
Jacksonville Animal Hospital
Location: Jacksonville, Arkansas
Salary: $250/week stipend
Jacksonville Animal Hospital welcomes student externs from AVMA-accredited veterinary schools to come learn in our busy, real-world hospital. We are a 5-doctor, privately-owned, small animal practice housed in a large, modern facility. Our doctors are all ages, and they all want to help you learn! We are an affordable clinic with a high volume of interesting cases. We provide wellness care, sick/internal medicine care, soft tissue surgery, orthopedic surgery, dental care (including dental radiography), therapy laser, ultrasonography, and more. Our busy schedule and close relationship with our local shelter provides many opportunities to assist in surgery. If you want to learn about business, management, and human resources, we will teach you. If you want to focus on medicine/surgery and skip the business side, we respect that and will stick to the medicine.
The hospital is open Monday through Friday 7:30-5:30 and Saturdays 7:30-12pm. Students are expected to work as many of these hours as they desire. Students are here to learn and are not expected to provide technical help unless it is being done to improve their skills. There is no emergency or on-call work. Minimal requirements as outlined by your university should be followed. Housing accommodations will be provided during your stay in a recently remodeled house next to the clinic. In addition to housing, a weekly stipend of $250 will be provided during your stay. We look forward to meeting you!
