Please note that the AVMA Government Relations Externship program does not provide any clinical experience, so we are not able to evaluate the student on those skills.

The AVMA Government Relations Externship Program is a four-week program that provides veterinary students with an opportunity to experience the regulatory and legislative activities of importance to the practice of veterinary medicine. Students are expected to perform duties that support the work of the American Veterinary Medical Association’s Government Relations Division on public policy issues facing the veterinary profession. During their externship, students will discover the scope of veterinary medicine in the various branches of the government, while expanding their understanding of the legislative process and the veterinarian's role in that process.

Externs are expected to actively participate in advocating on behalf of veterinary medicine and the profession. Externs work under the mentorship of AVMA GRD staff on issues that affect the veterinary profession, such as student loan debt, animal welfare, funding for veterinary education, and small business and tax issues. They are asked to problem solve, adapt to daily changes in priorities, and influence others. Tasks that are assigned during the externship include meeting with congressional offices to discuss AVMA’s legislative agenda, attending hearings on behalf of staff, researching information, updating materials that support AVMA’s advocacy efforts, and completing a weekly summary of activities on time.

Primary objectives of the externship program are for veterinary students to gain a better understanding of the ways in which public policy impacts the profession, discover how veterinarians can be involved in the legislative process, participate in advancing AVMA’s legislative agenda on Capitol Hill, and immerse themselves in networking with federal veterinarians to gain insight into the depth and breadth of activities in which they are involved. The AVMA GRD Externship provides an opportunity for veterinary students to take what they are learning in veterinary school and apply it outside of a clinical setting, allowing them to learn another facet of the profession while making a difference in shaping the profession.
