We are happy to offer externship opportunities to 3rd and 4th-year veterinary students from the US and foreign veterinary schools. Externships are required for those considering an internship at B.W. Furlong & Associates. We make an effort to ensure that our externs are able to assist and observe all the veterinarians in our practice. Externs will also spend time with the current interns to gain a solid understanding of the internship program.
To submit an application for an externship, we ask that you provide the following information to email@example.com:
- Current resume
- Proof of liability insurance
- Proof of health insurance
- Proposed date(s) of visit. We cannot accommodate externs for more than 2 weeks, and arrivals must be scheduled for Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. During the months of June, July, and August, we generally can only accept 4th-year students, but 3rd-year students may suggest dates as well. Please identify as many weeks that you are available as possible so we can do our best to accommodate you.
