4/1/2017 Student Externship Program
Do you know a promising student who is interested in food animal medicine? Are you a student looking for an externship or in need of help to fund an externship? Apply for the AABP Student Externship Program. It’s a scholarship to enable students with an interest in bovine medicine to use their summers and school breaks to gain experience in the field. Applications for funding are available on the AABP website at www.aabp.org/students/asep.asp. You can also find the information in the Student section under AABP Grants/Scholarships. You can submit your application and reference letters from faculty members online. We have also added an online database of clinics interested in hosting students under the Externship Opportunities section of the website (there is a link from the Student section of the AABP website). For more information, contact the AABP headquarters at 800-269-2227 or aabphq@aabp.org. The deadline for applications for externships occurring between May 1, 2017 and October 31, 2017 is April 1, 2017.
4/1/2017 Add Your Practice and Become a Part of the AABP Externship Database
AABP has a searchable database available with externship opportunities for veterinary students to consider at http://aabp.org/jobs/mentor/selectstate.asp.
