Hagyard’s Veterinary Assistant Internship

Are you looking for a great undergraduate internship opportunity in the heart of Horse Country? Hagyard would love the opportunity to network with any interested clubs on campus i.e. pre-vet or equine clubs this spring semester. They have an exceptional lineup of internships to offer during the 2022 breeding season (January-June) with something to fit everyone’s interest from medicine and field care, to surgery focuses. 

Attached to this email is a link to a video where current interns share about the experiences and relationships they have gained. Check out the video here:

If the video didn’t seal the deal here are even more reasons to consider applying:

  1. A very high veterinary caseload provides for ample hands-on learning. Students take the information and skills they are learning in the classroom and apply that information in a real-world setting.
  2. Hagyard has been in business for over 140 years and we’ve been offering internships since the 1940’s. The Veterinary Assistant Internship started in 2008 and we’ve had just under 300 students complete the program.
  3. This is a paid internship with a formal orientation.
  4. Continuing education is provided and great networking opportunities.

More information is attached, and be sure to apply before the October 1st deadline!
