What is an externship?

Like an internship but shorter! Current veterinary students will shadow doctors and help out at your hospitals to get practical experience. The average externship is around 2 - 6 weeks, but you’ll determine the official length, terms, and any pay with your student.

Veterinary students enjoy externships because it allows them to get valuable experience practicing their skills. It's also a great opportunity for them to connect with mentors and begin building their network. If they have a positive experience, they'll share it with their classmates, potentially boosting your recruiting efforts at their entire vet school!
