Learn more about the Program

The Program includes five semesters and can be completed within two years by full-time students. The first four semesters are completed on campus and the fifth semester occurs at regional veterinary practices. During this externship-semester, students complete their training at some of the finest veterinary practices in the greater Philadelphia area. These include emergency, critical care and specialty practices, as well as general small animal, mixed and equine and feline practices. Additional training at biomedical research facilities is also available to students.

Upon successful completion of the Veterinary Technician National Examination (VTNE), graduates are eligible for licensure as veterinary technicians. The demand for veterinary technicians is great and graduates are, therefore, readily employed. There is a wide range of animal health related fields that graduates may pursue. These include: biomedical research, exotic and zoo animal medicine, wildlife rehabilitation, pharmaceutical sales, academic instruction, laboratory animal medicine, food inspection, clinical practice, emergency and critical care medicine and government regulatory agencies.

Veterinary technicians enjoy an exciting and dynamic profession. If you like working with animals and would like to be part of the veterinary health care team, you should consider a career in veterinary technology at Manor College!
