Externship

The Alvarado Veterinary Clinic offers an excellent externship program for 4th year Vet Students. Our externs have come from every veterinary school in the U.S. as well as from Canada, Germany, England, Poland, Ireland, and Australia. A typical externship lasts from 1-6 weeks and varies depending on the student’s needs. We provide a place to stay located just behind the clinic.

Not sure what area of veterinary medicine you want to practice in? As a busy large mixed animal practice you will get to experience all areas of veterinary medicine. You will be able to observe case work ups, surgeries, go on farm calls, and assist with after hour emergencies. Our goal at the Alvarado Veterinary Clinic is to be as good as any specialty clinic that focuses on small animal, food animal, or equine medicine.
