College of Veterinary Medicine Launches New Database For Listing Externship Opportunities

Kansas State UniversityApril 29, 2021

A new tool at the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine will make it easier for veterinary practices and related animal health companies to connect with veterinary students looking for an internship.

Electronic programmers at college have just completed a searchable database that enables veterinary clinics to maintain a permanent electronic profile and easily update available third-party vacancies for veterinary students interested in expanding their professional experience and skills prior to graduation.

“Students benefit greatly from outside experience in various markets and specialties,” said Bonnie Rush, dean of the veterinary school. “These experiences help graduates stand out in their search for permanent employment after a doctorate in veterinary medicine. We appreciate the commitment and generosity of external mentors for their contribution to the professional growth of the next generation of veterinarians. “

A two-week internship offers professionals the opportunity to work with specialists, researchers or veterinarians in unique areas of veterinary practice. Students can participate in the daily activities at the facility as much as the practitioner deems appropriate. Experience abroad can reinforce or duplicate a core clinical rotation or area of ​​clinical expertise not available in the college’s education program.

The database enables veterinary clinics to describe and advertise their practice-specific services and training offers. Veterinary medicine students who would like to apply for an internship must obtain approval from the university before participating in an internship.
