Extern Training Program Details


Our Extern Training Program is a two-week program designed to deliver spay/neuter surgical instruction, and offer students a behind-the-scenes, hands-on look into the world of spay/neuter and preventative care. The program is open to senior veterinary students attending AVMA-accredited colleges, who have completed at least the course and clinical surgery portion of their veterinary training (not rotations).

The program excels in its surgical instruction and practice, with nine out of the program’s ten days involving some amount of surgery. Because of the fluctuating nature of our business, the exact curriculum moves according to patient/case availability. Dependent on each student’s ability, most students have historically performed 25-50 surgeries in the two-week period.
