Externships & Summer Jobs

We are dedicated to providing learning and development opportunities to future veterinarians and veterinary technicians through externships and summer jobs.

Veterinary Externships

We tailor each externship opportunity to align with your goals. Learning opportunities vary by practice and your skill level, but may include dentistry, anesthetic induction and monitoring, venipuncture, surgical assistance, patient handling and restraint, sample collection, pharmacy duties, lab work, client communication and education, and more!

Benefits of a WVP Externship:

  • Choose your own adventure: small animal, mixed animal, exotic, dental, etc.
  • Stipend reimbursement for all travel related expenses (unless restricted by school policies)
  • Hands on experience not always found in a classroom setting
  • Expand your veterinary network
  • Evaluate practices to potentially join as an Early Career Veterinarian!
