Friendship Hospital Veterinary Externship

Friendship Hospital Veterinary Externship is an opportunity for veterinary students to learn more about their field in a high-quality clinic. The rotating externship provides observational opportunities in Primary Care, Urgent Care and Specialty Services.

Externs shadow specialists in various departments, such as Neurology, Specialty Surgery, Internal Medicine, Diagnostic Imaging, Anesthesia and others. Although no direct patient care is included, externs will learn much by shadowing specialists.

Externships last 1-3 weeks; housing is not provided. The externship offers a flexible schedule for veterinary students. Preference is given to third and fourth year students. The schedule can include weekdays and some evening shifts in Urgent Care.

Friendship Hospital for Animals was established in 1936 in Washington, D.C. The hospital provides primary, emergency and specialty care to more than 60,000 dogs and cats each year throughout the D.C. area. They are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.


The location is usually in D.C.
