The primary purpose of our Veterinary Student Externship is to provide a hands-on learning experience for 3rd and 4th year students who are enrolled in Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program. The program is flexible and can be scheduled in 1- to 4-week blocks, depending on the extern’s availability. We feel that the students who possess an open mind and a willingness to learn will benefit the most from our externship.
Founded in 1976, Panhandle Veterinary Services is a 4-doctor mixed animal practice in Chipley, Florida. If you’re looking for personal and high-quality service, this is the place! We have a beautiful 6700 sq ft hospital, complete with a modern large animal treating facility, including "suites" to hospitalize the big 'uns. Our small animal services include preventative medicine, digital radiography, ultrasound, and dentistry, as well as full boarding and grooming facilities. Dr Anderson is a diplomat of the American College of Theriogenology and offers many reproduction services.
The Veterinary Student Extern is responsible for performing inpatient and outpatient medical care under the direct supervision of our veterinary staff. They will be expected to perform in-house diagnostic tests (hematology, chemistry, and radiology) with competence, perform routine client education, and to assist in surgical procedures.
Free student extern housing available in the practice clinic on the second floor. We are happy to provide more details for those interested!
