RBVH offers students enrolled in veterinary technician programs the opportunity to participate in supervised instruction in a clinical setting. Externships are offered for both veterinary technician students and specialty veterinary technician students.
Technician Student Specialty Externship
This advanced externship is for second year veterinary technician students. These students must be competent in basic clinical technician skills and seeking exposure to specialty nursing.
Specific tasks and hourly requirements are determined by the attending college.
