GRD Externships Application Deadline October 12

By Stephanie Fisher, grassroots coordinator, Governmental Relations Division

The AVMA is currently accepting applications for ten 2013 Governmental Relations Externships. The deadline for submission is October 12. The AVMA Extern program pairs talented veterinary students together with the AVMA Governmental Relations Division for a four-week program that introduces Externs to the breadth of public policy issues facing the profession and provides hands-on lobbying experience with legislators and staffers on Capitol Hill. It’s an opportunity to learn a facet of the profession that you won’t find in school – and make a difference in shaping the profession at the same time.
