Brewer Veterinary Clinic is a teaching hospital and we offer several types of shadowing and externship opportunities. Veterinary medicine is a constantly evolving field, and it's certainly not easy. It's important for students to experience life in a veterinary hospital before making the commitment to pursue a career in this field. Students are the future in veterinary medicine, and we love to mentor and guide them in their journey to a wonderful and rewarding career. Please read below to learn more about the opportunities we offer.
Students 12 years of age or older can spend part of the day with us, shadowing a veterinarian or technician. This is not a hands-on experience, but students are invited to be immersed all areas of our hospital, including exams and surgery.
