The externship program at the Animal Emergency Clinic of Maury County, LLC (AECMC) actually involves three distinct sections: Emergency Medicine, Private Practice and Humane Society Spay/Neuter. Our externship program provides a wide range of experiences with multiple points of view from many different people.
The Emergency Medicine section involves time at the AECMC shadowing the veterinary and veterinary technician staff providing care for patients that are referred to the clinic by area veterinary hospitals for care after regular business hours. We currently serve parts of 10 counties and over 35 veterinary hospitals. Our staff consists of licensed veterinary technicians and technician students from the local college. Our hospital has also volunteered to allow technician student interns to rotate through our hospital as part of Columbia State Community College's technician training program. The clinic is a full service hospital with in-house blood analysis, radiology, and a modern surgical suite.
The Private Practice portion of the externship can be divided between a mobile veterinary practice owned by one of the current AECMC associates and time in a traditional small animal veterinary practice.
The Humane Society Spay/Neuter portion of the externship involves spending time at Nashville Humane Association with Dr. Louis Lembo. Dr. Lembo currently performs more than 150 spay/neuters per week with a team of 3 assistants. The student extern will not only be exposed to high volume spay/neuter setting but will also learn about shelter management and medicine. At the extern's digression, they may participate in special situations, such as cruelty investigation or education opportunities, as they arise. The extern will be supervised and will not directly participate direct in these events, other than as an observer.
