AVMA Headquarters Externships

The AVMA Headquarters Externship stipend program helps students who would like to explore the opportunities of organized veterinary medicine. This externship is open to all students who are members of the Student American Veterinary Medical Association (SAVMA). The AVMA provides five stipends up to $2,000 (funded by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation) for externships lasting between 3-4 weeks. Student participants can spend their whole externship in one division or divide their time among various divisions, depending on choice, time, and availability.

Applications for the 2015-2016 AVMA HQ Externship were due on March 15, 2015. Please check back in the Fall for the opening of the 2016-2017 application cycle. 

"Whether or not a student is considering a future in veterinary governance, the externship at AVMA headquarters is invaluable. Regardless of future career aspirations, it is essential to acknowledge the importance of this governing body and to understand the decision-making process that guides our profession."
-- Michael White, 2012 HQ extern
