Externships are available year round at our mixed animal veterinary hospital. Priority will be placed on 4th year students, but other years are welcome to inquire. We are looking to hire an additional veterinarian as well, so there is a potential for an externship to turn into a permanent placement for post-graduation. 4VM externs will receive housing arrangements.
