to encourage current veterinary students and new graduates to take
advantage of the practical training in medicine and practice management
offered by AAEP-member practices. Externships and internships allow
students and new veterinarians to learn and perfect technical and client
skills. Practices benefit from the enthusiastic participation of the

and new ideas.
