Library, computer databases, and rounds. We operate out of a multi-specialty center and there is ample opportunity for interaction with the independently operated practices within the center: Veterinary Cancer Group, Eye Care for Animals, Animal Dermatology, and Advanced Critical Care of Los Angeles (Critical Care, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Neurology, and Surgery).
Medical record keeping will not be stressed on this externship. As mentioned above, this is primarily and observational externship and not one where students will be directly performing procedures on patients, it is, however, one where the student will have free and direct access to our specialists, and when appropriate, assist in clinical procedures.
  • 5-day, Monday through Friday schedule.
  • Estimated number of hours per week - 40.
  • Direct and free access to both veterinarians.
