Veterinary Student Preceptorship Program

Share |

Company/Organization: Zoo Atlanta

Description:

The Veterinary Student Preceptorship Program is designed for veterinary students who have completed their third year and is intended for them to become more familiar with the practice of zoo veterinary medicine. The minimum period required is six weeks. Students are required to complete a project of their choosing during the six-week period. This is a volunteer program; no stipend is available.

PROGRAM DETAILS:
Zoo Atlanta offers an opportunity for a non-paid veterinary student, whenever these arrangements do not conflict with other official educational programs.

Preventive medicine, clinical judgment, proficiency with specialized equipment, and husbandry of a wide variety of species will be emphasized. An appreciation of the zoo veterinarians role in the community, and knowledge of the rules and regulations pertaining to a zoo animal practice, should also be gained from this experience.

The zoo veterinarians and licensed technicians supervise the program. Most procedures are performed in the zoo veterinary clinic or at cooperating institutions. The student will be expected to gradually develop confidence and knowledge in handling techniques, to demonstrate the proper use of equipment in routine procedures, and to utilize the available literature in exotic animal medicine.

Qualifications:

The program is designed for veterinary students who have completed their third year (or equivalent in international programs) and is intended for them to become more familiar with the practice of zoo veterinary medicine. The minimum preceptorship period required is 6 weeks. Students may be required to complete a project of their choosing during the 6-week period.

This is a volunteer program; no stipend is available. We will try to assist the student in finding housing in the local area, but this is not guaranteed.

Length/Availability:

Minimum preceptorship period required is 6 weeks.

End Date:

, 12/31/23
