A student externship locator is now available from the AVMA.

Using the tool, which became available April 7, students can browse listings by state, college or university, interest area, and sponsoring organization.

Dr. Patricia L. Wohlferth-Bethke, assistant director of the AVMA Membership and Field Services Division, said students and AVMA volunteer leaders had requested a way to easily find externship opportunities, particularly because some veterinary colleges require externship participation.

"Finding adequate, quality positions has been difficult in the past, and this locator is a way to make the search easier," Dr. Wohlferth-Bethke said.

To use the student externship locator, go to www.avma.org/vcc/ and click on either the "Student Externship Locator" box on the right side of the screen or the link on the left side.
