ASSOCIATION OF ZOO VETERINARY TECHNICIANS

If you are a veterinary technician student or recent grad, AZVT has an amazing resource list of zoos & aquariums that offer
VETERINARY TECHNICIAN TEACHING PROGRAMS!

What are TEACHING PROGRAMS? We use it as an umbrella term covering the more commonly used: externship, internship, or preceptorship.

In general, participants of these individual programs will be performing similar duties as the supervising zoo vet tech. Most facilities require certain medical clearances be met. A few examples may include: a negative TB test within the last 6 months, current tetanus vaccination, and completed rabies vaccination series and/or titer. Please review the individual posting for current requirements.

Most zoos do not provide monetary support or housing for students. But some may offer assistance in locating/suggesting housing options.

To add a Teaching Program, download and complete the Program Posting Form
 
READ AND ADHERE TO THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE FORM.
