Veterinary Careers

Welcome to our Veterinary Careers Program,

This lab intensive program introduces students to animal care and veterinary medicine while using the same skills that they may be expected to perform in the field. Students increase their knowledge by working with animals, utilizing medical terminology, performing clinicals, practicing animal nutrition, gaining clinical experience, and more. In their second year, students will have the opportunity to complete a year long internship to become a Certified Veterinary Assistant.
