Current veterinary students! Come join us for an unmatched opportunity to develop your professional skills in one of our fast paced, non appointment, contemporary hospitals! We focus on mentorship and development through a hands on style of teaching at all of our Chicagoland, Quad Cities and Northwest Indiana locations. You will be guided by an experienced team of doctors whose knowledge and individual attention will help you learn to deliver the highest standard of compassionate veterinary care while also developing your client communication skills.
We offer flexible externships that range from two to eight weeks year round, all set to align with your availability. Often you will be scheduled Monday-Friday days so you can explore the normal daily life and caseload of a busy general small animal practice.
Under the direct supervision of a rotating team of experienced doctors you will be exposed to various methods of practice and teaching styles, ensuring that you achieve your maximum growth and potential. You will assist in working up cases, developing diagnostic plans, providing general wellness care, refining technical skills, writing medical records, expanding your client communication skills, scrubbing into surgery and potentially even helping with rehab and reproductive procedures depending on the hospital.

Housing available at some locations
Hands on practice, training and mentorship from accomplished DVMs
