New York City Veterinary Specialists


NYC Veterinary Specialists offers externships of two weeks duration to fourth year veterinary students. As a comprehensive private specialty hospital, we offer rotations through the following specialities: Behavior, Critical Care, Dermatology, Emergency Services, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Surgery and Radiology. Individuals are paired with an attending clinician throughout the rotation as well as the intern on the service. We invite inquiries about our internship program at any time. The nature of involvement with cases is primarily an observational role although students are heavily involved in case management and discussion.
