Externship Program

Externship Information for Veterinarians and Technicians

At Deason Animal Hospital we offer an excellent externship program for Veterinary and Veterinary technician students. Our externs have come all over the U.S. as well as Mexico, Canada, Japan, Germany, Ireland, Taiwan, Holland and France. We provide a place to stay just walking distance from the Hospital. A typical externship last between 1-6 weeks and varies depending on the students needs.

You will be able to observe case work ups (large and small animal), surgeries, go on farm calls and assist with after hour emergencies, 7 days a week and 24 hours a day. We hope you will appreciate the experience of all aspects of a rural Veterinary practice.

Some of Our Externs Stories

Claudia Miller - Germany

I spent four wonderful weeks with you, full of new experiences and lots of opportunities of gaining more skills and knowledge! It was very interesting for me to see different cases than in Germany, for example snakebites, sandburns, cancer of the eyes or cosmetic dehorns.

Scott M. Stevens

My experience here has been nothing but fantastic. Everyone here cares and this is evidenced by your attitudes, work ethic, and level of care provided. The small and large animal medicine practiced here is top notch. Thank you for allowing me to do so much.

Sissy - Taiwan

The past three weeks here have been a great experience for me. Everyone is so friendly and always willing to give me advice and teach me. I've learned so many things here, especially watching the large animal practice. I am very greatful for the chance to participate in much of the work. Everything has been wonderful here.

Michelle Yoshida - Ireland

I loved every farm call, unfortunately I jinxed all the down cows, and all the dummy calves wanted to die around me. Delivering a calf, seeing swine cases, enjoying the scenery. I had a BLAST here! Best externship yet!

Becca Keeffe - Ireland

I came to Texas woth no expectations. I had little or no idea where I was going, who I would be working with or where I would be staying. I have been here a little over a month now and the place has totally Stolen My Heart. The Lone Star state has given me more that I could ever have asked for; an outstanding veterinary clinic with some of the most professional people I have ever met, a brilliant outlook for my future.

George Voros - Ohio

I was very glad to do an externship here at Deason Animal Hospital. I was also impressed with the willingness of the doctors to take an almost first year, yet still trust me like a 3rd or 4th year veterinary student. I enjoyed the late night ER calls.

Kyle Norman - Iowa

Deason Animal Hospital is a very well run clinic with amazing staff who are passionate about veterinary medicine. I learned a lot even in the short time I was here. The coolest thing I got to see was the rattlesnake bites. We don't have those in Iowa so that was very interesting.
