2020 Virtual Externship

Due to COVID-19, AMC will be offering virtual externships this year. During the third week of November (16th-20th) and December (14th-18th), prospective interns will have the opportunity to join AMC staff doctors for both live and pre-recorded programming including rounds, educational lectures, informational panels, and more.


Externship Program

AMC’s externship experience offers comprehensive exposure to a multidisciplinary referral specialty hospital. Candidates must be third- or fourth year veterinary students in good academic standing at an AVMA-accredited school of veterinary medicine.

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, AMC is not accepting any externs or visiting veterinarians until further notice. Please contact our Education Department at if you need to reschedule any upcoming visits.


Internship Program

The AMC Internship Program is designed to provide qualified applicants with the opportunity to reinforce, extend, and refine their clinical skills and enhance their diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities. The large and varied caseload, combined with a high level of specialty support by experienced veterinarians and board certified veterinary specialists, creates an invigorating learning environment for individuals interested in private practice, residency training, or clinical research.


Residency Program

The Animal Medical Center is the largest postgraduate veterinary teaching institution in the world, employing more than 100 veterinarians and 350 support staff. The annual caseload exceeds 50,000 visits. The residency program draws upon AMC’s wealth of case materials for teaching and clinical investigation.
