Yuma Veterinary Clinic offers to volunteers and veterinary student externs the opportunity to gain clinical experience in a mixed practice setting. Our volunteers and student externs are expected to be very hands-on and work as a part of our team during your time with us. You must be over 18 years old and have an interest in veterinary medicine. Veterinary students during their clinical year will be given priority for externship scheduling. We strive to provide opportunities to assist in case work-ups and treatment plans along with our doctors.
In order to apply for a volunteer or extern position, please call our office at 928-344-1956 to express your interest and give your information to one of our staff members. Be prepared to email us your resume, a brief paragraph about yourself and what your goals are in spending time at our mixed animal practice. If you are a veterinary student extern, please provide your dates of availability. Our doctors often like to speak with externs or volunteers before they come to spend time with us to try and arrange the best schedule for your interests as our clinic is very diverse and busy!
