ASPCA NYC Forensic Sciences Externship
In partnership with the New York City Police Department, the Forensic Sciences team works to support casework and advance and execute the application of veterinary medicine and forensic sciences to the investigation, prosecution, and prevention of cruelty to animals. Externs will be exposed to all the basic areas of forensic veterinary medicine through expert mentorship.
“I'm so glad I was able to do an externship with the Forensics Sciences team—I learned so much. I think it's so important to be able to recognize signs of suspected animal abuse, and I feel much more prepared to do that in my future clinics.”
