Animal Emergency & Referral Center of Minnesota

Exclusive small animal emergency and referral, specialty.
The
Animal Emergency & Referral Center of MN is located in the east
metro of the Twin Cities. We are a small animal clinic that started as
an emergency clinic 30 years ago, and has morphed into an emergency and
referral center, offering complete patient care with multiple
specialties. We are a team of highly skilled veterinarians,
specialists, and technicians, who work together to provide quality
patient care. We place an emphasis on learning and have a strong
program for veterinary student externs and vet tech interns. We have
had vet student externs from throughout the country. We limit the
extern rotation to 2 students per 2 week rotation, on alternating
schedules, to maximize individual learning. Each extern will get one on
one time with the criticalist, the internist, and multiple ER
veterinarians. This allows exposure to a variety of practice methods.
Externs are expected to be able to interact with clients, take
histories, perform physical exams, perform minor procedures, scrub in on
surgeries, and take part in rounds. We have an extremely positive work
environment and are very welcoming to students. Our primary hospital
is in Oakdale, MN, which is open 24/7, with a satellite clinic in St.
Paul, with limited hours. Students spend a majority of the time at our
Oakdale clinic, but also will spend at least 2 shifts at our St. Paul
clinic. Students can customize their schedule. Each shift is up to 8
hours long, with a mix of days, evenings, weekends and holidays, for a
total of about 40 hours per week.

questions, and who take initiative in learning as opportunities arise
will get the most out of this program.
