USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service Externships
The externships are offered through the Volunteer Student Program (VSP)and are designed to provide veterinary students work experience in food safety and inspection. This is an unpaid externship for students currently enrolled in a college of veterinary medicine and accepted into the FSIS Volunteer Student Program.
Externships are 2-6 weeks long and give students valuable field training that will prepare them for a career in food safety and inspection. Students may choose a location that is convenient but are responsible for their own housing and transportation.
The externship is designed to introduce food safety and inspection as a career option. It is offered by the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service, a public health agency whose job is to ensure the safety of the public with meat, poultry and egg products.
The location is usually in DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.
