Student Responsibilities - what is expected of students in terms of hours, days of the week, shadowing or actual support?: 

40 hours a week. Prefered during Dr Dixon's shifts, but flexible.

Shadowing, but willingness to see a gap and having initiative to help is always appreciated. Our technicians have a lot to offer in training as far as veinipuncture, iv catheters, anesthesia etc on a variety of species.
