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.

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