Description of Elective Experience:

The Las Vegas Veterinary Specialty Center (LVVSC) and Veterinary Emergency + Critical Care (VECC) is a specialty practice comprised of board certified and residency trained doctors.  We offer externships in Emergency/Critical Care, Surgery, Cardiology, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Neurology, Internal medicine, and Physical Rehabilitation.  The doctors at VECC and LVVSC work together to provide the highest quality of collaborative medicine to ensure the pets are treated with the highest level of care. 

Responsibilities vary greatly depending on the rotation elected.  On all rotations, externs have the opportunity to shadow specialists, gather history information, perform physical exams and diagnostics, observe procedures/surgeries, and discuss differentials and appropriate treatment plans.  On some rotations, externs will have the opportunity to perform procedures themselves with supervision when appropriate (including collection of lab samples, ophthalmology tests, placement of IV and urinary catheters, placement of NG tubes, thoracocentesis, abdominocentesis, and pericardiocentesis) and be more directly involved with case management and client communication.
