Externs will gain valuable hands-on experience in exotic animal and aquatic medicine. The externship lasts 4-8 weeks and includes observing and assisting with medical procedures on fish, birds, otters, penguins, sea turtles, and other reptiles.
This externship is unpaid and for experience only. Students are also responsible for making their own transportation and living arrangements. Externs work 40 hours per week for a minimum of four weeks; preference is given to students who can work 6-8 weeks. To apply, students can submit an online application and include a resume, transcripts and two letters of recommendation. The application should indicate the dates when the student will be available to work.
