The AVMA offers a wide range of opportunities for veterinary students looking for hands-on working experience.
AVMA externship programs offer students a chance to work directly with the association to make a difference in the lives of working veterinarians. Working either at AVMA Headquarters or our Government Relations Division in Washington, D.C., you can help improve the lives of veterinarians across the United States while learning about the work of the AVMA, explore organized veterinary medicine and the role AVMA plays in shaping the veterinary profession.
We also offer externship stipends that provide funding for qualifying students while they perform their veterinary externships elsewhere.
Search through hundreds of externship possibilities that help build your knowledge within veterinary medicine using the Student Externship Locator. The Student Externship Locator is a resource of the AVMA's Veterinary Career Center. View externships by State, Special Interest or see what Schools and Organizations have to offer.
