If you are a veterinary technician student, AZVT has an amazing resource list of ZOOS that offer

What are TEACHING PROGRAMS? We use it as an umbrella term covering the more commonly used: externship, internship, or preceptorship. Please note, the listings found here are for PRE-GRAD veterinary technician students.
[POST-GRAD Internships can be found on the Jobs page under the Resources tab]

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.
