Are you looking for a great learning experience? At Town and Country we like to work with veterinary students so they can get as much hands on experience as time allows. You will have the unique opportunity to understand the day-to-day operations of the practice while getting hands on clinical experience. Our clinic is very supportive, committed to excellent medicine, and provides exceptional service to animals and the people who love them.
You will work closely with one of our friendly DVM's to gain experience in gathering patient histories, performing physical exams, creation of treatment plans, diagnostics, dentistry services, observing/assisting or performing surgical procedures, and medical management of patients. In addition to practicing their clinical skills, student externs will have the opportunity to practice their communication skills with the medical team, support staff, and clients.
Most externship experiences range from two to eight weeks depending on student and hospital schedules. All DVM students (regardless of class year) are encouraged to participate in externships.
