VETERINARY TECHNICIAN EXTERNSHIPWorking closely with accredited technician programs both in Idaho and around the country, our externship provides veterinary technician students the opportunity to use and develop their skills by working alongside some of the most talented Certified Veterinary Technicians in the industry.
Externs rotate through different specialty departments at WestVet and will see a wide spectrum of cases that includes everything from ear infections to emergency surgeries. Flexible schedules allow individualization and enable students to pursue their own interests. We work within the confines of each individual school’s requirements.
As part of our hospital administrative team, WestVet employs a Surgery Manager that has earned a VTS (Veterinary Technician Specialist) certification in Emergency and Critical Care. Our patient care administrative team is an invaluable resource to technician externs on a myriad of levels. They help extern students explore different career opportunities available in the field of veterinary medicine and guide students to achieve the skills necessary to excel as a CVT.
