American Animal Hospital Association Externships

AAHA Externships
American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) Externships provide in-field work experience for veterinary medicine students. The externships are available to both veterinary and veterinary technician students.

Externships allow students to engage in their profession for a short time to learn what skills they need to develop to prepare for a career in veterinary medicine. Positions are available across the country. Externships can include small animals, felines, canines, emergency and trauma care, general practice, and much more.

Externships are generally two weeks long but can be longer. Some positions will provide housing and a stipend and others are for experience only. Most externships require students to be in their third or fourth year of veterinary medical school in order to apply, but exceptions may be available.

Why not apply for an externship and internship?

The externship program is sponsored by the American Animal Hospital Association, a professional organization founded in 1933 that serves the interest of animal hospitals and veterinary doctors across the U.S., Canada and overseas. Their information and services, seminars and publications help provide the best quality of small animal care for veterinary professionals.
