Description of Elective Experience:

The Alvarado Veterinary Clinic offers an excellent externship program for 4th year Vet Students. Our externs have come from every veterinary school in the U.S. as well as from Canada, Germany, England, Poland, Ireland, and Australia. A typical externship lasts from 1-6 weeks and varies depending on the student’s needs. We provide a place to stay located just behind the clinic.

Not sure what area of veterinary medicine you want to practice in? As a busy large mixed animal practice you will get to experience all areas of veterinary medicine. You will be able to observe case work ups, surgeries, go on farm calls, and assist with after hour emergencies. Our goal at the Alvarado Veterinary Clinic is to be as good as any specialty clinic that focuses on small animal, food animal, or equine medicine

We also offer a 1 year internship program and our interns are generally picked from the prior year’s class of externs. To see more details on the AVC hospital and facilities, and to check out internship opportunities, please check the Internship portion of the website.

We are probably 60% small animal, 20% equine, and 20% food animal. We average approximately 100-120 cases a day

Description of Elective Experience:

We are a mostly small animal practice in Northwest, Ohio. We see roughly 5-8% large animal (equine, bovine, caprine, ovine and porcine) and some exotic pets. We are a very fast-paced, busy practice in a rural area whose main focus is taking care of our people and their pets. Our practice performs a fair amount of canine reporductive work including artificial and surgical inseminations as well as cesarean sections. An extern with us would get a great view of veterinary medicine. They could perform spays and neuters and observe c- sections, cystotomies, exploratories, dental prophys and many other surgeries. We also have many equipment a tools to help us with medical cases as well. We would analyze bloodwork, read fecals, interpret radiographs and ultrasounds. Our staff enjoys teaching and coaching and we would love to have a veterinary student join our team to better their knowledge of the veterinary profession.

Description of Elective Experience:

Students will shadow one or more veterinarians in the practice. There will be opportunity to practice diagnostic skills, examine records, palpate/ultrasound cows (student would need to arrange ultrasound usage), assist with surgeries, discuss practice management and regulatory compliance, work in our milk quality lab and all other aspects of a dairy practice. The level of hands on opportunity will be dependent on the comfort level of the student and the particular farms that are being visited. The greater the length of the externship, the greater the ability to practice these skills.

This externship will provide a thorough cross section of a private food animal practice for students with a strong interest in dairy medicine. We hope the student will benefit from our collective practice experience and diversity of backgrounds, while we may benefit from the infusion of energy, ideas and questions from the student.
