Veterinary Extern - General Practice

National Veterinary Associates Naples , FL 34102

Posted 3 weeks ago

Job Description:

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.

Students will work closely with the supervising DVMs 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 NVA externships.

Angel Animal Hospital is a fear-free certified and AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital. We are also cat friendly and have dedicated cat rooms and a cat-only waiting area. We have a dedicated surgery suite, digital radiographs, digital dental radiographs, ultrasound, and cold/therapy laser which offers our patients the best care possible. We prioritize each pet's health and every client's satisfaction very seriously and always strive to provide the best experience available in Southwest Florida! The primary purpose of our Veterinary Student Externship is to provide a hands-on learning experience for 3rd and 4th year students who are enrolled in Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program. The program is flexible and can be scheduled in 1- to 4-week blocks, depending on the extern's availability. We feel that the students who possess an open mind and a willingness to learn will benefit the most from our externship.
