Veterinary Mentorship for Monmouth Co. High School Seniors

RBVH offers an eight-week mentorship program for high school seniors seeking a supervised educational experience in a veterinary hospital.

High School Mentorship

Select local high schools have integrated mentorship programs into their curriculums for their senior class students and are continually seeking potential mentors. RBVH has participated in this program since 2001. The purpose of this eight-week mentorship is to provide senior students from Monmouth County a collaborative learning experience with a science/health related theme. Mentor sites host students two hours per day, three days per week.

AAHA Referral Accredited

The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is the only organization that accredits small animal hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada. AAHA-accredited hospitals are evaluated regularly on approximately 900 quality of care standards. Veterinary hospitals accredited by AAHA must demonstrate an exceptional level of medical care and client service and they are re-evaluated every three years to make sure they are keeping up with industry updates.

Choosing an AAHA accredited veterinary practice for your pet's medical care assures you that the practice has the facilities, equipment, staff, and medical protocols required for high quality care.

Because participating with the AAHA Standards and the Accreditation Program is voluntary, practices that earn AAHA certification have enough confidence in the level of their care to welcome measurement from an outside organization against the most rigorous published standards in the industry. Approximately 3,200 veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada have made a commitment to meeting the highest standards of veterinary care.
