At the Chastain Veterinary Medical Group our goal is to not only impart knowledge and wisdom but also to encourage a love of learning and an unquenchable enthusiasm for the profession. Because of this we are thrilled to welcome and mentor some the best veterinary students from around the country.
Our Externship and Preceptorship Program is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association. It allows us to work with the AAHA and the Texas State Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners to provide a hands-on learning experience for veterinary students, bringing them out of classroom theory and into the practical, real world of small animal veterinary medical practice.
What to Expect: Under the supervision of a licensed doctor of veterinary medicine, and in accordance with the Texas law, you will work cases with a veterinarian in a supportive, colleague-to-colleague, team teaching environment. You’ll learn and perfect your small animal physical exam skills, learn to perform veterinary medical treatments and procedures, use medical imaging and laboratory diagnostic tools, and interpret diagnostic data. You will also be involved with surgical cases and continue to grow your interpersonal skills through interactions with both support staff and clients.
Contact us today to schedule your chance to become part of this practical learning experience!
To participate in our Externship and Preceptorship Program, you must be a veterinary student enrolled in an accredited doctor of veterinary medicine program; authorized to work in the United States; and available for a continuous 2- to 6-week period.
