Wildlife and Exotic Animal Medicine Internship at the New England Wildlife Center (Massachusetts)
Students from all over the world come to the Center to work and study in both the Wildlife Clinic and the Odd Pet Vet (exotic animal practice). Students come to the Center to gain valuable first hand experience in veterinary medical technology, medicine and natural history. Our internship program specializes in full-immersion apprentice-style job training to high school and undergraduate students. Over a hundred, out of eight-hundred, of our interns have gone on to veterinary school and graduate training. Many gained their first exposure to the field of veterinary medicine at the Center as volunteers who then went on to be interns at the Center. Students have come to us from schools like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Boston University, Boston College, Mt. Ida College, Becker College, Dartmouth, Bowdoin, Colby, and the Universities of Virginia, New Hampshire, Maine, Alaska, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, and so forth. Students who have interned at the Center have represented all-in-all about a hundred colleges and universities.
