Veterinary Emergency Group has one mission: to help people and their pets when they need it most. VEG is a fast-growing group of hospitals that has completely overhauled pet emergency and urgent care with a progressive and client-centered approach, rapid response times, and a highly-focused emergency-only team.
Our Externship Program gives students intensive hands-on emergency medicine experience and the chance to work alongside skilled emergency doctors. Students will focus on learning how to communicate effectively with our clients, diagnose a variety of emergency conditions, develop emergency treatment plans, and collaborate with support staff in a fast-paced environment.
Our externship gives you the advantage of:
Flexibility: You can choose how long your externship is going to be, from a few days to up to three weeks (year round opportunities)
Location: Our group of VEG practices is rapidly growing, which means you have multiple locations to choose from
Mentorship: You’ll get to partner with a senior ER doctor for the duration of your externship
Housing: Housing and accommodation assistance programs are available if you need them
Focus: Emergency medicine is all we do—so you’ll be fully immersed in what that truly entails
Hospital Locations: NY, NJ, MA, FL, TX, CO, IL, GA
Accepting students currently enrolled in 2nd, 3rd or 4th year DVM program at an AVMA accredited university
