Our externships are tailored to each individual student depending on personal interests and school requirements. They are available year-round to 3rd and 4th year students only and for any length of time. (Undergraduates and 1st/2nd year students may ask us about shadowing a Doctor).

We do not currently have an Intern Program for Veterinarians.

Externship FAQs

Who can participate in an externship?

Externships are open to students currently attending veterinary schools that are U.S. accredited

How do I apply for an externship?

It is easiest to apply for an externship via the online form. The externship schedule fills up quickly and is on a first come first serve basis. We do not have any restrictions on the length of your stay. If you have any questions, please contact Jen Geese at (215) 515-8810.

Do you provide housing? Do I need to have my own transportation?

Quakertown Veterinary Clinic has free housing on a first come first serve basis.
Providing your own transportation is not a requirement, but would make it easier to get around during your down time

Is there any paperwork that I need to submit?

Once your externship is confirmed, you will need to send the following documents via email to jgeese@quakertownvet.com
