ASPCA Animal Hospital Veterinary Externship
Our veterinary externship program provides quality exposure to a varied caseload that includes access to veterinary care, surgery, internal medicine, veterinary forensics, and cruelty intervention. You'll observe emergency medicine, surgeries, dentistry, and inpatient care. Our externs leave with medical training, stress-free handling techniques, and an understanding of the various veterinary career paths available in animal welfare. Apply today on our website or email Jaclyn Larosa for more information!

3rd year veterinary students are allowed to assist with animal restraint and comfort care. 4th year veterinary students are allowed to assist in the same capacity they would during their clinical year in school. This includes scrubbing into surgery if the caseload allows.
We accommodate externs for 1-2 weeks.
