Veterinary Student Externship
Company: Ethos Veterinary Health
Posted on: May 16, 2022
Externships are available to veterinary students in their 2nd,
3rd and 4th years. Scheduling priority will be given to 4th year
students. Student externs gain broad experience working in the
Emergency department of a small, busy emergency practice.
Externs shadow veterinary technicians, and emergency and critical
care staff veterinarians. Externs are expected to be interactive
with the staff, attend technician and DVM rounds when available,
proactively discuss cases when appropriate, and actively contribute
to the general workload as able. Hands on experiences are dependent
on the individual, caseload, and supervising veterinarians.
Veterinary student externships are generally 1 week at a time given

expected to work on the weekends when on the ER service. Our
criticalist works 5 days in a row - 12-14 hour days with a
potential for an overnight shift. She is unavailable the entire
month of June.
