Wait! How did you end up here? You are either quite curious or a budding vet student hoping to move to a cool town for a minute and learn some amazing things along the way. An externship/preceptorship period is one of the most rewarding classes that you can attend at Veterinary College. Not only do you get to practice what you have been learning, but you also continue your education. Aspects of medicine are enhanced but beyond that, Paz Vet works to enrich your perception of the world, the people around you and the pets that you treat.
Our extern program will introduce you to basic surgeries, referral surgeries, ultrasound, venipuncture techniques, greeting clients, treating patients, learning how to build a flow, creating an environment conducive to cooperative work and finally, the great city of Austin and its downtown enclaves. Below are some of our past externs and their experiences. Want to know more?
