Veterinary internships are a great way to gain on-the-job experience while earning academic credit.

Practical work experience that supplements a student's course work is a valuable asset when seeking employment after graduation. All students should try to get related work experience through either summer jobs or internships. The importance of gaining experience in this field prior to graduation cannot be stressed enough. Academic credit can be awarded for internship work experiences, however it is not required.

Pre-veterinary students should locate a veterinary hospital to gain hands-on clinical and animal experiences during summers.  It is advised that students should keep a journal to keep track of their hours on these activities.
