An externship experience at an NVA hospital will give students the unique opportunity to understand the day-to-day operations of the practice, and to gain valuable hands-on clinical experience. Although every NVA hospital is unique, we all have some things in common: an environment that is supportive, committed to excellent medicine, and provides exceptional service to animals and the people who love them.
We can provide you with the opportunity to shadow our doctors and highly qualified technicians to see as much as possible during your externship with us. You will have the chance to work up cases along with the doctor, assist in surgery, develop anesthesia protocols, and ask lots of questions to learn more about daily practice life! Our days are busy, but we do our best to have fun in the process of providing high quality care to our patients!
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 NVA externships.
