Students will be involved in an intensive four week program of strictly feline medicine and surgery. The facility offers high quality medicine and surgery including complete dental and surgical services. There is also a special emphasis on preventative Feline Medicine and correction of behavioral problems. A high volume of broad spectrum (i.e., primary and referral) cases will be experienced by the student. Students are encouraged to participate in all aspects of the practice including a full discussion of practice management.
We have 2 full time and 1 part time veterinarians:
The clinic sees an average of 190 patients per week. The student is directly involved with a minimum of half of those cases either in appointments or in a surgical setting, since the days worked are split between two doctors. Complicated or interesting cases are always brought to the attention of the student and questions and suggestions are encouraged.
The clinic is open Monday thru Friday from 7:30 am-6:00 pm and on Saturdays from 9:00 am-1:00 pm. There is access to the veterinarians by the student as least 9 hours each weekday and at least 4 on the weekend.
Yes. Students are provided a small efficiency apartment located in the clinic and a weekly stipend of $50.00 to help with expenses.
