As part of the Veterinary Science Technology curriculum, each student is required to perform two 120-hour preceptorships, one during the summer term and a second during winterterm. The preceptorship is conducted at a site of the student's choosing under the direct supervision of a licensed veterinarian or a licensed veterinary technician. Examples of suitable locations would include:

  • Veterinary hospitals
  • Animal shelters
  • Animal research facilities
  • Zoos

Pre-exposure rabies vaccination is required of all students. This is administered in a series of three vaccinations and must be completed prior entering the first 120 hr mandatory preceptorship (VSCT 201).
